Photo Walk 15 – Sunset at Richmond Dyke

Was spending some time to enjoy the Autumn weather, and since I haven’t been to the Dyke for a while, it was a good opportunity to enjoy the nature and taking some sunset photos.

The trail is a popular walkway that goes around the North and West side of Richmond and ends at the South West side of Richmond.  I remember when I had a bike, me and my brother would ride all the way from the North side of Richmond to the South side, and then back.  It was a lot of fun.

Found this great spot to enjoy the sunset.  I am surprise that it was so quiet here today.

Using the Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens to take this photo at 10mm.

Then compare to another photo taken at the same place, but using the Canon EF 70-200mm F4 L at 200mm. Feeling a bit overwhelmed when I actually can do a direct comparison like this.

As the sun sets, the colour changes quite quickly.

And this is only moments after the previous photo.

The colours are amazing.  Autumn and sunset make the perfect moment for photos.

It was getting a bit dim and a higher ISO was used.  You can see the graininess of the photo produced at ISO 1600.

Richmond is where the Vancouver International Airport is, so it is very common to see airplanes taking off and landing.  A trail designed for enjoying the nature is no exception.

It was almost getting completely dark.  I decided to use manual mode to lock the exposure to capture the last 3 photos so that you can see how the sun finally sets.

Hope you enjoyed this photo post.
