This is a shot I took with my iPhone 6s Plus at Kafuu Resort. The clouds blocked the sunset but it was still a cool scene.
Sunsets are one of those things you never tire of living here in Okinawa. This is a shot I took a while ago with my iPhone 6 Plus. Have a great day everyone.
We finally got some decent weather yesterday after a week of rain, clouds and cold. I decided to head over to Chatan and walk around with my iPhone 6 and my Fuji x100s. Just for a change I've had the TCLx100 on for a couple weeks now. I love the 35 equivalent I get from my x100s, but sometimes it's just nice to shoot with a 50mm focal length. I never grow tired of how even the most mundane can look interesting in late afternoon light. I shot the next two images from my car. I see so many photos from my car, but usually can't stop or get to my camera in time.
I know it seems like I'm posting too many sunsets this week, but I was in the Manzamo area tonight, so I stopped to spent a few minutes enjoying the hazy sunset we were having. The sailboat, or whatever that type of boat is called, came into the picture just as the sun was nearing the low clouds that seem to always be there during sunset in Okinawa.
Living on a tropical island, sunsets are taken for granted. We all notice them, but seldom take the time to stop and enjoy them. The other day I decided I was due for a little sunset therapy, so I drove over to Araha Beach in Chatan. Even though, as always my trusty Fuji x100s was in my bag, I reached for my iPhone 6 Plus. Sometimes it's just more fun to challenge myself and use my iPhone.
We should all take time to stop and enjoy moments like these. All too often we take for granted the beauty around us. They say "the best things in life are free". Scenes such as this must surely be one of them.
In Part 2 of shooting with the iPhone 6 Plus we head to a local festival to try a few action shots, then to the beach, and finally a night shot and sunset. For this first shot I got in close to make the dinasour fill the frame, and to give it that larger than life look. The cool cloud formations created leading lines right to the subject, and I thought the couple in the lower right also added to the image.
I haven't shot too many sunsets of late, but fortunately the weather cooperated today as I sat on Araha Beach in Chatan enjoying the last sunset of 2014. As is common for me, I preferred to photograph other people enjoying the sunset rather than just the sunset alone. :) Thank you all who have taken time to visit my site, and comment on my work. Hope everyone had a great year, and I wish you all a happy, safe, and prosperous 2015.
