This is my kind of water! The sun was setting behind me here and there were some great scenes to be had. It’s hard to look away from the glow of the sun but I often find that behind is where the best shot can be found. I suppose that sometimes that’s for the simple reason that the light is falling across everything in its path. Here there was a bit of magic in that green water; I have a feeling that the colour would be quite different at sunrise. So, if you want a tip, I’d say, “look behind”. A funny postscript to this is that I was taking another sunset photograph a few days later, turned around and found a gathering of cows looking at me!This is photo is from Auckland, New Zealand.
These tools helped me work the magic:
