Q: What is the best lens for theater photography?

A: Do you know?

another exhausting ride home from work, another exhausting traffic jam. the sun was exhausted as well. as i sit at a red light waiting to turn, i see the sun fade away but somehow it still leaves its trademark beauty behind. now, how can i capture this moment in the night. no time to pull out my tripod. i had to get this shot before the light turned green. so i put the canon on the dashboard and shot this through the windshield.

    Super stunning sky shot. Some of my favorite are skyscapes.
    The sky offers up for us a myriad of emotions in their cloud formations. From the solemnity of the grey, raging storm tossed black to jubilant clouds of fluff. This shot is a particularly beautiful one.
