Try 3am in the morning.

That's just the intersection where you change sides. Always indicate!

Funny! But probably not the ideal sub for this.

Hey Smails! My dinghy's bigger than your whole boat! by [deleted] in nonononoyes

That's a gas tank I think. But still the woman was the only one that didn't have to fight for her life after they jumped in. I'd hate to know what it was like to try to swim in waterproof overalls.

Take the shot at midday.

I'd love a wider angle lens with a nice low aperture like that. Once my photography becomes more successful and I start selling a few more photos I might be able to buy one!

Sure thing I used a Canon 70D, 18-135mm lens, tripod and an intervalometer because I was making a time-lapse.

It's not a dumb question and the answer is yes. Just about any dslr I've used has been capable of astrophotography. Here is a photo I took using a Canon 500D which is much older and a lower model than the camera I usually use. Let me know if you have any questions on how to do astrophotography.

I've got an f/1.4 lens which is amazing but it's 50mm so I think my 18mm is better for shots like this despite the higher aperture.

It's just the reflection of the skies. The shoreline is my favourite part of the photo

It was the middle of the night. There is a steel mill in that direction and they dump hot metal in big pools of water from time to time and it lights up the sky. It's beautiful.

It's not during sunset but I love how everyone thinks that haha.

The settings were: 20" f/3.5 ISO 3200

What it is is light from a street lamp in a carpark below cast over the ocean. We do get bioluminescence down there but it has to be disturbed to show up.

Thank you! So it was shot on a Canon 70D 20 exposure f/3.5 ISO 3200

It's part of a time-lapse that I'll most likely post on instagram in the near future.

It's just one photo the stars just showed up through the clouds. I don't really stack apart from doing star trails. I might do that though because this is one frame from a time-lapse so I have the ability to make a star trail photo if I want.

This exactly. Haha nah it's actually not the sunset this was taken in the middle of the night and the clouds were actually illuminated by light from a steel mill nearby.

Thanks for the feedback I appreciate it! Yeah I could have saturated the orange and made that stand out more but I thought it kind of glowed more without saturation so I prefered that aesthetic.

Hey sure can!

20" f/3.5 ISO 3200 Canon 70D

This was part of a time lapse and the glow was from a steel mill cooling steel.

Hi there this photo was taken overlooking the Port Waikato coast of New Zealand last night. The reason for the magnificent orange glow in the sky is because there is a steel mill near by that uses big pools to cool the hot steel.
