Crepuscular Rays Photo
I took this photo of some fantastic crepuscular rays back in August. The sun had just set and the evening sky was filled with beautiful orange beams of light. I was using my Nikon D300 at ISO 250, f/2.6 at 1/60 of a second.
Crepuscular rays are typically observed in the evening or dawn which is how they got their name. The word crepuscular means “of or related to twilight”.
