1st weekend in November

November 2nd and 3rd was the first weekend in November. In the U.S.A. we turn the clocks back one hour for daylight saving. It was a gorgeous weekend. It was a bit a chilly side, but nice and sunny in Eastern Carolina.

I used my Nikon D7100, which I need to get fixed with the Nikon DX Nikkor 55-300mm 4.5-5.6 GED lens. I went to Atlantic Beach to capture the sunset 17:12 (5:12 PM).

The first picture was taken at 5:02pm using a shutter speed of 1/800, with an aperture setting of f/8, and an ISO set to 100. The bottom two pictures the shutter speed was set to 1/250, the aperture f/8, and ISO 125.

One of these days I would like to capture the green flash at sunset. The green flash is an optical phenomenon that you can see shortly after sunset or before sunrise. It happens when the sun is almost entirely below the horizon, with the barest edge of the sun – the upper edge – still visible. For a second or two, that upper rim of the sun will appear green in color. I took picture when the sun was barely touching the horizon and didn’t see the green flash. Maybe next time.
