Every now and then I talk about specific locations around the Los Angeles County area. Locations that I consider to be my “go to” spots in the event of a great sunset. Spots that don’t take long to get to and that I’m familiar with which makes it easier to find myself a quick composition in case I don’t have much time to get out too far for a surprise epic sunset. The Colorado Street Bridge is one of those locations for me. So one day, while I was out with my good friend for a late lunch/early dinner, I was glad we were near one of my “go to” spots. Earlier in the day while we were hanging out, nothing seemed of interest to shoot. The clouds had blown away leaving a mostly blue sky, and any clouds that did remain were small and not enough to make the sky pop. But when leaving the restaurant I looked up and noticed how the sky started to turn pink. I thought it was beautiful, but nothing I would be in a rush to shoot. As soon as we got into the car and started heading West back home, the sky simply lit on fire. The clouds had filled the sky and as sunset started, the sky turned into one of the more beautiful sunsets I had seen in recent months. So being that we were near the bridge, we parked nearby and walked out onto the bridge. At this point, I had my Sony A7R with me but I only had my FE 55mm f/1.8 prime lens with me. I usually travel light when I’m going out locally for a meal, but still, I almost always have a camera with me. Luckily, as wide as the bridge is, the focal length I had with me worked just fine.
