Orange Sunset

The sun was setting behind the Golden Gate Bridge. I was on Indian Rock, with my camera on a tripod and my new 70-200mm zoom.

For this photo, I double-processed the Raw image as I explained in an earlier story.

The photo below used my 2X teleconverter to achieve a 400mm focal length (or 600mm after multiplying by 1.5 to get a 35mm equivalence). It’s pretty much straight as I saw it, without much post-processing other than the standard levels and sharpening stuff.

Here’s what the scene looked like a little after the sun had gone down behind the bridge:
