A couple weeks ago I rode out to the tip of Bird Island Pier in the Niagara River during the daytime and during an unexpected fog (click here to see those photos). And tonight--being determined to teach myself all the manual controls of my DSLR camera--I rode back out as the sun set to snap a few more photos. It was really interesting--and a bit challenging--to play with the camera as the light played with me as the sun set and the light changed every couple of minutes. Anyhow, here are a few of the results. Click any for somewhat larger views.
