big sun over OB pier, redux…

…there were a couple more compelling shots that came out of yesterday’s awesome sunset over OB Pier. This one is closer up, and earlier in the evening, so the banding on the sun is far superior:

What’s interesting is how much the light and color changes in just a few seconds. The above picture is clearly much richer in blues and greens, but as the sun goes down, things get cooler and bluer.

This shot is similar to yesterday’s image, but I think the framing is better. Unfortunately, I didn’t compose this until the sun was much lower, so it doesn’t have the banding, but there’s other stuff going on in the shot that makes it somehow compelling in its own right. Like, what are they looking at off the end of the pier at the left?
