Golden Sunburst Sunset

While on our Sunset Cruise Safari, I demonstrate how to photograph the sunset with a sunburst effect. There are three steps to achieve this effect: (1) set your aperture at f/18 or higher, (2) shoot into the sun, (3) best results are when the sun is partial eclipsed - in this case, by the Western mountains of Acadia National Park. Sunsets from the water are magnificent, this night's was a deep golden yellow. To learn how to create images like this, consider taking my sunset cruise photography workshop off Mount Desert Island. 

EXIF data: Nikon D800, 24-70mm @ 70mm, f/22, 1/250 sec, ISO 400, 6/3/14, 7:58 PM
