I took these Nashville sunset photographs as I walked across the Green Hills Mall parking lot on my home from a bit of Krogering. It had finished raining about an hour earlier, and the skies were spectacular. This was one of those types of sunsets that makes it look as though the horizon were on fire.
Due to the decreasing light, the shutter remained open longer and longer, making clear shots extremely difficult. I deleted far more images than I saved; however, I’m glad I at least captured these.
NextGen Gallery: A free WordPress plugin
This is my very first experiment using the free NextGen Gallery WordPress plugin; it took over an hour to figure this much out. It’s definitely not the easiest plugin to figure out. However, I’ve finally learned how to:
- Create, save, edit photo galleries
- Edit the ALT tag, description, and the associated tags (keywords) for each image
- Float a slideshow to the left or the right so text will flow around it (the same effect used for images on all of my blogs)
I have not figured out how to automatically cause the slideshow to start when it’s not designated in the URL (e.g., http://hikingnature.com/ vs. http://hikingnature.com/sunset/april-sunset-nashville-frasier-photos/nggallery/slideshow/).
