Vatican Sunset

Vatican Sunset

After staking out a good vantage point on the Ponte Umberto I, I stayed there from the late afternoon (golden hour), through the sunset and into the blue hour. The exact same composition can deliver a range of different images.

In this image shot in late November, the evening progressed and the river smoothed out, providing stunning reflections of the Vatican and early Winter sky.

I watched as small boat rowed down the river. Knowing that the water's smooth surface and the reflections would soon be disturbed I worked timing to take an image with the boat approaching the reflection.
