We all want to be shooting during the golden hour before sunset, and of course we will be shooting as the sun is setting and those glorious clouds are painted with colors too bold to be described. Those shots will make for masterpieces worthy of hanging in a gallery, or at least the living room!
But if you took off just as the sun set you will have missed half the show. Yes, once that sun sets it can get a bit nippy out. And yes, it's easy to get swept up with the stampede of others rushing to get out once the sun has set. But stick around a while, and work the light.
The twilight time is a great time to play around with longer shutter speeds without the need for an ND filter. Or with our ever improving camera's, it's a great time to try out just how good our high ISO is in that lower light. At the beach with the moisture in the air, it's an easy time to get the lights on a pier to sparkle without having to shoot at f22.
The twilight time is a time to be creative, have fun, and enjoy the solitude as most have left by then.
