I shot a wedding on Saturday. I used the 645D when I had time to be deliberate with photos and my K-3/K-S2 for the faster moving times and/or when high ISO was needed.
It was a nice day and a beautiful setting. I have attended weddings here before but this was my first shoot at this venue.

645D & FA 80-160




FA 45-85

A couple from cruising the back roads last night. There were lots of amazing storm clouds an hour before sunset but then they all evaporated by the time it went down.

645D & 67 300/4

Nice images! The location of #2 looks like a great place to potentially see the green flash (once in blue moon or once in a green sun).

Hmmm, I'd never thought about that. Do you know if the flash would be visible with an elevated horizon? All the green flash shots I have seen were over the ocean and I wonder if a horizon at 7000' above sea level would produce the same effect. I have never noticed it around here and have watched many sunsets from elevated locations.

Some from on holiday in Italy. Haven't used the Pentax much as my wife has threatened to batter me with it if I get too happy snappy!

These are from Viareggio on the Northern Tuscany coast...

We get green flashes occasionally on sunrises in Boulder Colorado from a vantage that is maybe 500-750 feet above the Eastern plains. The key seems to be that the sun is rising over a very flat expanse of land (or the sea) so that the sunlight is being refracted through a lot of air that is very close to the ground and that air is at a different temperature relative to the higher parts of the atmosphere. Your image #2 looks like it's pointing at some distant plains or flat-topped mountains and that coloration of the sky reminded me of what the sky looks like before a good sunrise. Even if green flashes don't occur, you might get some cool mirage and sun-disk distortions from that location at sunset on a very clear sky.

(At the very least, it's always interesting to revisit photographic viewpoints and learn how seasonal and weather patterns combine to create new photographs from old locations. It's never the same landscape twice.)

Interesting, I'll be on the lookout!
This is from near Gunnison and that direction is the area between Montrose and Delta so it is a pretty flat area although some big canyons cut through it.
I revisit a lot of places to get that seasonal perspective. That way I get something new and something familiar at the same time.
