Sunset on the Neuse River

A tree catches the last light of sunset on the Neuse River in New Bern, North Carolina

The first thing we wanted to do after arriving in New Bern was to get out and shoot something. It was almost sunset so we headed to a nearby spot on the Neuse River. The light was fading quickly and we really weren’t expecting much, maybe a few sunset silhouette shots but that was it.

As the sun dipped below the horizon across the river the light turned to gold. Everything took on a completely different mood for a few minutes. I think all three of us were able to capture something that made the it a worthwhile stop.

    I certainly agree with the others here, the light in this image is outstanding.

    The shape of that tree and the amazing light was just begging to be captured and you did a fine job indeed.

    That is just a lovely light Curt and the tree is very interesting too in how the moss hangs form it! Well done!
