A Star Bursts Over the Rocky Shore

Half way through the week and it’s time for me to remind you to check out this past week’s photo share post – Have you shared your own photographs with Phogropathy lately?

A Star Bursts Over the Rocky Shore

I love shooting into the sun. There is just something about creating these massive star bursts with the sun that I really enjoy and ultimately find really interesting in photographs.

This photograph was taken while I was looking for compositions at Point Judith for my long exposure after sunset shot. As you can see from the height of the sun, there was still a good amount of time left before the finale. Leaving a good amount of time to fine tune your compositions is probably the most important thing when trying to capture a sunset in a new location.

Do you like creating star bursts? Share are link to one of your favorite star burst captures below or put it in my Flickr Group for a chance to be featured in next week’s Photo Share!
