What can you say about sunsets that hasn’t already been written, over and over and over again? We all love a good sunset and so does the art world, especially photography. Any travel photographer will tell you that the only way they can get a landscape photo published is if it’s taken at sunrise or sunset so they wake up early and miss a lot of dinners.
The nice thing about Second Life is you don’t have to wait to get a good sunset shot, with windlight settings you can get your glass of wine watching the sunset in before breakfast if you want! As they say it’s five o’clock somewhere right?! The one thing I have learned about windlight settings though is, find your photo spot first in good light then adjust your windlight settings because wandering around a sim in dim romantic sunset light is how you end up falling off a cliff…
For my sunset photo I decided to go with a landscape shot. SL has so many great sims for landscape photography it’s hard to pick one. I ended going with a beach sunset since that is my favorite way to watch the sunset. I found this really neat old rowboat on Puddlechurch, with the sunset in the background I thought it made a nice shot.
Below are some shots from others that are doing the challenge along with me you can view more on our group Flickr page.
Next weeks challenge is “Yellow” so I thought I would include a link to an article about the meaning behind the color yellow to help provide some inspiration.
