Last Sliver of Color - Honolulu, Hawaii

Last Sliver of Color – Honolulu, Hawaii

It wasn’t until starting photography that I realized how fleeting the sunset was. Often the peak color lasts all but a minute, especially when reflecting off the clouds. On the other hand, I’ve discovered that post-processing can amplify any remaining traces of color. This was a dozen minutes after yesterday’s saturated image.

Even when the blue hour was already in progress, looking west along the Waikiki Beach shoreline revealed the last sliver of color. The wet sand reflection adds a touch more interest.

I did a quick walk west, chasing the last remaining light. At 1/30th of a second, this was the limit of what I could do with the Canon 35mm f2 IS lens. I bought it for my Fujifilm GFX 50R to add much-needed image stabilization. Initially, I was pleased. But realized afterward that it didn’t noticeably increase my hand hold-ability. About one stop at the most.
