For the past two years my friend Roxana and I have been in charge of the Lakewood Ranch Digital Photography Club Field Trips. Once a month we have organized a trip for our members to numerous locations within a 2 hour drive from Lakewood Ranch. On our first trip we gathered near UTC mall in Sarasota and photographed a variety of colorful displays of Christmas lights. On our final trip a week ago took us to Hart’s Landing in downtown Sarasota. Close to 30 of us spent an hour and a half photograhing one of the most amazing sunsets I have witnessed so far this fall. The never ending display of colors did not disappoint. I took this shot about half way through the evening with a newly purchased polarized filter. I like the way it darkened the water and upper clouds, cut down on the brightness of the sun but still highlighted the colorful sky.
