Orchard Beach Winter Sunset

Posted by

When I moved to the Bronx for medical school I never thought this borough of New York City had so much to offer. Since I bought my new DSLR I wanted to come to this park that is just ten minutes away from my apartment. The weather hadn't been cooperating, but yesterday was a perfect opportunity.

I spent about an hour outside taking over 190 photos of this beautiful Bronx beach. I played with the exposure and the composition and photographed the scene as the sun descended. It was a beautiful way to spend the early evening, but by the time I was done, I was almost frozen!

Over the next few days you can expect to see more shots from my time at Orchard Beach.

This was my first opportunity to photograph a sunset and it was a great experience.

Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.

I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.

Best wishes,
