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.


Dawn over Onondaga Lake, Syracuse, New York


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.

    Oh wow. That sunrise photo is gorgeous. I’m taking landscape photography lessons this weekend. I hope I learn how to take photos like yours. Beautiful.
