SUBTLETIES: A Sunset is not a always a Sunset

I found out the semantics of "Sunset" in Greece this last July. During the three hour hike from Fira to Oia in Santorini, I found out that sunset has a very different meaning to different people. I was after that special glow found just before the sun goes down and the purplish tones that appear right after sunset. Galen Rowell calls this the "Magic hour." To most people, sunset means pointing the lens directly at our nearest star. Since then I try to differentiate when I say I am going to make some Dusk photos.
