Photography: Dusk at the Georgetown Waterfront

By Ian Livingston

7:27 p.m., 10 second exposure at f/10 and ISO 100

A week ago yesterday, I grabbed my gear hoping to capture images of the waning dusk light at the Georgetown Waterfront. On the way, I stopped to smell and shoot some budding spring flowers. When I finally reached my destination -- arriving just in time to photograph the fading dusk -- I was not disappointed.

Sunset has been after 7 p.m. since the switch to Daylight Savings Time on March 9 and last Saturday's occurred at 7:15 p.m. As noted in a previous post, the time right after sunset is usually something special -- even under the cloudy conditions present last week.

Below is a collection of my favorite images, in chronological order, from the shoot on the waterfront. Winds, blowing around 10 mph, during the time the pictures were taken added a little extra movement to the water, and I attempted to manipulate this effect through long exposures -- which is why I used ISO 100 and a narrow aperture.

7:20 p.m., 4 second exposure at f/14 and ISO 100

7:21 p.m., 8 second exposure at f/14 and ISO 100

7:26 p.m., 5 second exposure at f/10 and ISO 100

7:30 p.m., 21 second exposure at f/13 and ISO 100

7:32 p.m., 10 second exposure at f/9 and ISO 100
