The Passage of a Sunset

Jeg har lovet dere en publisering av  en solnedgang som viser utvikling fra begynnelse til slutt. Og for å illustrere hvor fort og til dels overraskende ting skjer, har jeg denne gang inkludert  tidspunktet for eksponering  midt på grunnlinjen i hvert enkelt foto:

I have promised you a publishing from a sunset that show the evolvement from early beginning to the finish. And to illustrate the speed and partly surprising elements, I have this time included the time of exposure on the bottom line in each photo:
Legg merke til at dette første bildet er tatt etter at solen faktisk har sunket under horisonten. Man skulle kunne forvente at de neste bildene blir gradvis mørkere og mørkere?

Please observe that this first picture has been shot after the sun has actually fallen below the horizon. It’s therefore safe to presume that the following pictures will gradually becoming darker and darker . . .?
Litt overraskende ble det ikke helt slik!  (Det har gått 3 minutter)
A bit surprising – it didn’t quite turn out that way!  (3 minutes has passed)
Selv om selve solskiven nå er under horisonten, så er det fortsatt et fargespill i selve solnedgangen. Legg merke til det rosa skjæret nederst til høyre i bildet.

Even if the disc of the sun now is underneath the horizon, there’s still a mighty color play in action. Observe the beginning of a rosa tint in the lower right corner of the picture.
Det har nå gått 8 minutter siden første bilde og det rosa skjæret til høyre sprer seg raskt!

Its been 8 minutes since my first shot and the rosy tint to your right is spreading fast.
Det rosa feltet til høyre ser ut til å ha stanset opp, men – ser man nøye etter, så kan det se ut som noe er i ferd med å skje midt i bildet? Er det ikke en anelse rosa der?

The rosa area towards the right seems to have halted? But – looking closely it may look as if something is about to happen in the middle of the picture?  Isn’t there a soft rosy tint coming up . . .?
Jo, det var det sannelig! Hvor vil vel dette ende? Det er nå hele 12 minutter siden det første bildet ble tatt.

Yes, it really was!  Where is this gonna end up? By now it’s a full 12 minutes since my first picture was taken.
Men, – alt har en ende. Det er nå hele 18 minutter siden første bilde og naturen rundt meg – så vel som fargene blir mørkere og mørkere. Om et par minutter er forestillingen slutt, men det viser at vi nok har en tendens til å gå hjem litt for tidlig når naturen spiller opp?
Ser dere på bildenummere, så skjønner dere at det nok ble tatt 4-5 ganger så mange bilder som vist her, men det hadde blitt for små forskjeller fra bilde til bilde om jeg skulle ha vist alle. (Akkurat dette bildet har jeg dessuten vist dere før!)

But – everything has an ending! Now there’s a full 18 minutes since it all began, and the colors as well as the nature around me are getting noticably darker. In a few minutes now, this show will be over! But it goes to show that most people (myself included) have a tendency to leave for home far to early when shooting sunsets?
If you look to the picture numbers you’ll notice that there have been taken 4-5 times the number of photos compared to what has been published, but showing you the lot, there would have been too small differences from picture to picture. (Besides – this particular photo has been published before!)

    The colours and formations seem to change quick!

      Some times they do! Depending on the cloudlayers you don’t get to see because they are already underneath the horizon, but I may shoot an altered sunset just about every 4-5 minute if I have a mind to. Others are relatively stable and there’s no need to shoot more than half a dozen frames from it all! Very different from day to day!

    Don’t you just love watching it do its change. What I marvel at is, when the sun gets near the horizon, how quickly it disappears out of sight. Then leaves just a hint of where it has been.

    Absolutely stunning. I can just get lost in them. 🙂

    Greetings! I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout
    out from Porter Tx! Just wanted to mention keep up the good work!

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, Jane! And you don’t have to be especially brave, but at times we do have some problems with ‘spam engines’
      and in between I’m afraid I’ve deleted one or two too many.
      Accepting this, you should have no trouble in the future.
