The weather has been hazy, hot and humid the last few days. This creates some interesting atmospheric conditions which made for a very orange-red sunset last night. Down near Lock 24, this gentleman was fishing in the relative cool of the evening after a 95 degree F (35 C) day with the heat index going over 100.
I tried to show the concept of the three H’s in this photo. I wanted to avoid the starburst effect by using a larger aperture of f/11 as the round Sun looked hotter. So, too, the reflection in the water and the haze in the background adds to the feeling of heat. Even the fisherman’s hat was discarded. 🙂
