This shot was taken in the salt pans of Vasai. It was a warm evening. The sun was about to set at 7:00 PM. The sky was cloudless.
Colours of Sunset
Nature produces abundant colours close to sunset. The light changes quickly. If one is a bit patient, you can see wonderful colours in the sky even 30 minutes after the sun has gone below the horizon. This is true for sunrises too.
I was using my Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 II lens. The wide aperture was letting in more light, allowing me to use a high shutter speed. Silhouette of the tree took up half the frame.
