    I was digging through my photo library searching for a particular old photo and I came across this sunset shot that I never shared and it deserved to be shared.

    I took this photo back in 2010 on Lake Champlain, I was actually on a boat attending a family wedding. It was a beautiful day! I'm not EXACTLY sure where on the lake I was at the time, but I know I was near Burlington, VT.

    It's a shame I didn't shoot RAW at the time. I was still getting into photography using my very first DSLR, the Nikon D60! I loved that camera.

    Sometimes it's good to go back and look through your old stuff. You never know what you'll see that you didn't see before.

    Nice shot. Great to see Lake Champlain, I have some friends in Charlotte and they have told me it is beautiful at the lake.

    Yeah it is a beautiful lake, wish I could visit it more often. Maybe I'll try to get some sunset shots there next summer.

    Gorgeous colors. Were they naturally those shades?

    If I remember correctly, it was pretty darn close. It was dark too so the camera overexposed it. But yeah it was probably one of the best sunsets I ever seen.

    Nice shot! You captured the range of light and colors beautifully. Pretty amazing what 10 MPs and a camera made for beginners could do. I also started out with a D60. I had no idea what I was doing but it was easy and fun! Some of my favorite photos of my daughter were taken with that camera. I gave it to my oldest nephew along with the kit 18-55 and he still uses it occasionally.

    Yeah, the D60 was a great camera probably because it had a really good sensor for such a entry level camera. I believe it had a D200 sensor. I believe the lens I was using was actually broken but it still worked!
