My balcony faces west so I get a front seat panorama of spectacular sunsets almost every day. I’ve been taking photographs of the sunset from my balcony but the lack of an interesting subject in the foreground produced less interesting compositions. One day I noticed my little buddha on the balcony floor and decided to be creative with my photography. Instead of using the sunset as my subject, I focused my camera on the buddha and used the blazing sky as my background. The photo above was taken a few weeks ago and was my first attempt in capturing the buddha as a silhouette. Today the sunset had the sky blazing again so I dropped on my belly with my iPhone and captured the photos below.

Here is a view of Miami from across the bay at the Rusty Pelican Restaurant in the island of Key Biscayne. I took this photo just as the sun was setting and twilight slowly creeping in. People flock to this restaurant to dine and admire Miami’s beautiful skyline. The most coveted tables are the ones closest to the water where one can enjoy a panoramic view of this dynamic and multicultural city.
