   I think if the world was to end it would look somewhat like this, the sun fading and wearing away losing it's former radiance becoming a dying star.

   This is also a picture from Rügen, Baltic Sea from my tour with JanPusdrowski (here's a shot by him from the same location:… taken after sunset though). We drove to the north-western edge of the Island to gain a free horizonline without the Island Hiddensee in the composition which I found to be pretty distractive especially for low angle shots like this one. I actually started of with a 2 shot composition one for the forground and one for the sky but ended up simply using one exposure keeping the rather omnious feeling of the darker forground due to it's nice addition to this "end-of-the-world" feeling.

Das ist das Glück, wenn man an der Küste wohnt. Beneide dich.
Super in Szene gesetzt und die Sonne in die Mitte gesetzt.

P.s. habe gerade gesehen das es ja auch auf deutsch geht ;)
Ich wohne eigentlich im Ruhrgebiet, viel ungünstiger gehts nicht, zumindest wenn man Landschaften bevorzugt. Ich war nur ein paar Tage auf Rügen um zu photographieren. Aber das Meer ist i.d.R. mein favorisiertes Reiseziel. ;)

Ok, damit kann ich leben. Wohne auch auf dem platten Land.
An das Meer fahre ich auch gerne. Es ist zwar immer der gleiche Meer, aber jeden Tag verschieden.
Irgendwo habe ich meine Bilder von Rügen. Mal suchen :D
Besser plattes Land als Großstadtszenario, du hast immerhin keine Lichtverschmutzung, da kann man dann wenigstens die Sterne photographieren. ;)

Great movement and timing, you truly captured the last essence of the sun:)
Thanks, glad you like my approach, too bad you lose the sun star when using a longer exposure :(
