View 22: Sunrise, Sunset

My goal was to capture a sunrise and sunset over the weekend.  Turns out the location I selected for the sunrise really didn’t have a good view so I settled for something taken before sunrise.  With the sunset, I did much better heading to a beach on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario.

Sunrise…

Dawn over Onondaga Lake, Syracuse, New York

Sunset…

Sunset over Lake Ontario

Both of these photographs were taken with the fabulous Nikon 18-200 VR Zoom lens.  I have rarely taken this lens off my camera since I purchased it about a year ago.  The range is perfect for travel photography, walking about your home town and keeps your camera bag small and lite.  I highly recommend it!

For you Canon owners, Sigma sells an 18-200 OS Zoom Lens which has gotten good user reviews.
