Key West Sunset

Key West Sunset
Key West, Florida

One of the big happenings in Key West is the nightly sunset celebration at Mallory Square. It is festive and fun with a lot of different performers. A cruise ship was blocking the sunset at first but it pulled out fast and the sunset could be seen in all its glory.

This 80-200mm lens took this shot and it did a good job. It is really sharp and after the sun went down I took a few shots basically in the dark. With the lens and the great high ISO performance of the D700 combined the pictures actually came out pretty well.

We are moving up the coast today and will be reporting from the Miami suburbs for a couple of days.
