These West Island sunset photos capture the first dusk of Daylight Saving Time. Sunday, November1st, 2009. This is one of the earliest days for daylight saving time, as the first Sunday of November is the time to set the clocks back an hour. Some of the most spectacular New England sunsets can be photographed this time of year. The angle of the sun along with arriving and departing storm clouds add to the excitement even to the most novice photographer. This photo shoot gambled the results with low light - I used a Sony Hybrid DCR-SR220. This camera is the workhorse for the West Island Weather Station for both video and still photos.
