For all the entries in Aurora & Twilight blog, go here.
Prologue: Two of my favorite things that Mother Nature gives us to feast at are the Sunrise and Sunset. I can never get enough of them. So for 2022, I picked a Sunrise-Sunset themed blog where I will be posting one collaged picture of a Sunrise and a Sunset, one for each month of the year. Hoping that you will enjoy this photo collage of two of my favorite topics as well!.
For the month of September, I went to the beaches again for my sunrise and sunset photography. This time I went to Wildemere Beach in the town of Milford in Connecticut. Temperatures had just begun to reduce, and the morning was quite chilly and windy. Nonetheless I was able to capture the rising sun inside a shell that I found on the shore. Pretty cool isn’t it. 😛
The pre-dawn brought the birds out of their nests. Not a great capture by me, but I managed a few in flight.
Here are a few more shots of the gorgeous sun that I saw on that chilly morning – a complete orb of the golden sun; and a few more candid shots of capturing the sun into the shell I found.
For the sunset, I went to Gulf Beach, again in the town of Milford, Connecticut. I went twice to capture the sunset this time. The story of the first time comes in a little while. However, the following day I went again. However this time around, the clouds came in the way, giving a hazy look for the setting sun. Luckily the speeding boat gave the much needed definition to the photo.
The setting sun also put the lazing boats in bright light, almost waking them up and urging them to get to shore.
Now to the story of the first day we went to the Gulf Beach. I had been there the previous day with a dear friend and her daughter. The month of September this year came with the 10-Day Indian Hindu festival called Dusshera. For the first nine days we did Navratri Nine Colors which is basically you wear each day an outfit in a particular color that is pre-determined for each of the nine days. These colors for the nine days change every year.
For this year, the day we went for the Sunset was Day 2 with the color of Red (more about Navratri Nine Colors from the 2021 Dusshera, can be found here). Me and my friend along with her daughter got decked up in Red, and raced to take some pictures with the setting sun as the backdrop. We missed the sunset by 5 minutes, but still managed to take some gorgeous photos of us with the dusky sky as the backdrop.
