Close Up Photography at Twilight

We tend to think of sunsets and big landscapes at twilight, but it's also my favorite time to shoot close-ups. Subjects that are unremarkable in midday light take on a surreal glow at day's edge.

This image of lichen on rock was captured at 7:40 pm with a Pentax K-5 at ISO 800 using a Pentax 18-55mm zoom set to f/4.5.

The next time you're out photographing a sunset, maybe look down at your feet too. There might be another world there waiting to be captured.
