About a half hour before sunset, to just after dusk is a pretty awesome time for photography, pretty much anywhere. That’s because when the sun is setting you get this nice low lighting angle that changes shadow play, the light diffuses through the clouds and atmosphere to cast wonderful pastel colors through the sky, and everything takes on this nice soft glow. Key West, Florida is no exception to this rule. In fact, the ideal conditions for this time are found more often here than most places.

A lot of people flock to Mallory Street to catch the sunset over the water, and watch the street performers. I think I set out to do this too, but time caught up with me much too quickly and I found myself too far away to make it there for sunset. But that was no problem, because I enjoyed watching the show from the middle of Duval. The subtle merge of the waning light in the sky with the artificial lights of the building is pretty cool as well. What do you think?
