The sun has been rising and setting for millions of years and we are touched every single time. This is because a truly beautiful scene is created, the sight of the sun giving us life and then saying farewell as it leaves us in darkness.
The sky is the most important element when taking photographs of the sun. The trick is not to over expose it, combining the sky with other elements can really help make the photograph more interesting and stunning.
Other elements consist of long and short focal length, good light metering, the Weather, focus, silhouettes and of course post processing.
People always think that it is very easy to turn a sun setting and rising image in to a cliché, the photographs below clearly show that this is not true. Keep your eyes open and look for a scene you did not see anywhere before, a beautiful sunlit sky photographed the right way any make any one say ‘Wow’.
