A sunset is one of those moments in life that is often overlooked. Despite their regularity, each sunset is unique and anything but common. Perhaps that is what spurs us to grab our cameras and start shooting as if today's sunset is the first one we have ever seen. In a way, it is.


I love to photograph sunsets. Not only sunsets are more often dramatic than sunrises, but also I can never get up that early to photograph sunrises. Recently, we had a chance to watch and photograph the sun as it went down into the horizon and savored the changes that took place over time at Golden Palm Tree Resort in Sepang Goldcoast!

Reaching there, the place really looked impressive and relaxing. We strolled around at the deck overlooking the villas and enjoyed cool sea breezes with a breathtaking sunset view.






#7 Clouds tend to make the sunsets more dramatic.




“Patience is a virtue” makes absolute sense in photography. We need to wait for the right moment and be ready to click. Well, I don't really know how to take stunning sunset photos with my DSLR camera, but I know I should get it right over time if I keep shooting and practicing.

Any tips to capturing the last glow of daylight?

Btw, the photos are gorgeous now.. so I'm sure with lots more practice, you'll be a pro in no time. But these landscape photos are great as well. A great sunset fills my heart with immense pleasure.. Just by appreciating the beauty of the sunset, that shows that you have some semblance of romance in you! LMAO! :)

tekkaus said... @ 18/5/11 12:34 AM

tekkaus said... @ 18/5/11 12:35 AM

Those are beautiful sunset shots, Monica! How can I ever tell that you're an amateur DSLR user when you showed us your pro captures? Those are really amazing! I can't get enough of sunset scenes myself so you can really tell that I love your shots! :)

I love sunsets too, but I love sunrises too! :-D Sunrises are much more beautiful Mon, believe me, B and I used to talk a lot about things and we'd usually stay up until the wee hours of the morning and watch the sunrise together, of course that was pre-kids and pre-responsibilities.. :-P
