Sunset Over Princeton Airport

NIKON D5100 20141019 2644

I parked near the Princeton Fitness Center and walked over 206. I only realized it when I got to the traffic light but there is a pedestrian cross walk near the exit onto Route 206 from the strip mall.

Despite my experience photographing the Princeton Boathouse this morning I forgot my cold it was outside. I got to the location — the empty lot just north of the Princeton Airport — around 5:30; just a few minutes before the start of golden hour.

Thank goodness I had my sunglasses. Steering into the sun while I focused my camera to the horizon might have damaged my retinas. I stood in the cold firing off a few shots about every five minutes. I left when I thought the sun would go down and leave me standing in the field in the dark.

Seeing patterns

My client was closed yesterday so I had a whole day to myself. After running some errands and a lunch at the Rocky Hill Inn ( I had the best burger in New Jersey ) I took leisurely stroll through the outer edge of Community Park North. Some of the trees still had leaves. I shot these in the late afternoon sun about an hour before sunset.
