Sebring Florida Sunset Worth Waiting On

Reflective orange sunset Sebring, FL.

After an exciting day getting outside enjoying some photo-walks along the Kissimmee River Basin, I was treated to a fantastic sunset. I stopped for a bite to eat in Sebring, FL while on my way back to South Florida during the early evening hours trying to kill some time waiting on the sunset. There are several beautiful lakes in the Sebring area, and after about 30 minutes of looking around for some cool shoot locations, I found one. The light was fading fast now, and the sun had just set below the horizon, so I had to quickly unpack my camera and tripod and start framing up some shots.

Nice sunset.

The lake was very glassy on the eastern shore where I was located, with some light winds further out over the western waters. Great sky colors were developing, and the glassy water surface was displaying awesome reflections of the light and structures. I shot about two dozen frames (including HD video) of the lake, including wide shots of the entire lake, and some with a dock nearby and a hotel on the horizon.  So many of the pictures came out great, and I’ll add more to my photography gallery at a later time, but here’s one shot I really like and wanted to share with you all.

Sky On Fire February Florida Sunset

Wild looking fire sunset over lake okeechobee.

It’s the peak of the Florida dry season which makes it tough for a storm lover like myself, but the sunsets have been fantastic here in February. The sunset on Saturday evening over Lake Okeechobee painted the sky as if it was on fire. The sub-tropical jet stream brought in some impressive upper-level clouds that became vividly illuminated after the sun set below the horizon.

New Years Eve Final Sunset of 2010

Three palm tree sunset winter 2011.

My New Years Eve tradition the last few years. -

I ventured out with my camera and tripod to capture the last Florida sunset of 2010. I didn’t spend much time scouting a location, but I wanted to make sure I did get setup in time for the show. Yet again, it was another fine sunset to close the off the year.

2010 was another good year for me and so much to be thankful for. I met so many new people, had some wild adventures, good times with family and friends, and learned important things along the way. I’m excited for 2011 and I wish everyone a Happy New Year!
