  • Look Away From The Sunset

    The flat featureless skys on these hot days has meant that in some areas there have been some spectacular sunsets. Inland and surrounded by hills this is not always true.

    My bold attempts always ended up with flare but by filtering the sun between the trees I did end up with this,

    But by turning away from the sunset and concentrating on where this golden light was falling I found some additional opportunities.

    Now with my back to the sun,

    By moving to the top of the hill and then turning yet again to look sideways,

    and finally as the sun did indeed fade away behind the hills I could look upwards,

    Thank you for looking.

    Ah yes, it's not all about sunsets at that time in the evening, that golden light has a magical quality.

    "A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there � even if you put them end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity." ~ Robert Doisneau
