S/V Jest at Sunset, Narragansett Bay, RI 2009

Jest at Sunset
1/6400 sec at f/4

S/V Jest finishing up a Tuesday evening race off Jamestown with her sails full of wind and sunset. The intense red and orange hues of the sky at sunrise and sunset are mainly caused by scattering of sunlight by dust particles, soot particles, and other aerosols in the Earth's atmosphere. Sunset colors are typically more brilliant and more intense than sunrise colors, since there are generally more particles and aerosols in the evening air than in the morning air.
