Silhouetting at Sunset

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I was wandering around the garden with the 300mm f/2.8 and 1.4x Teleconverter trying to capture some garden birds in the golden hour when I saw the sun setting behind a big old Oak Tree that we have. At 500mm the “lens compression” gives the illusion of the sun appearing larger than it is and the backlight the sun is creating gives the tree a nice silhouette. Personally, I think this type of photography is possibly one of the simplest and gives a powerful shot.
