Wait for it :-)

I was following a very low tide out across the Solway Firth last night. The sunset was nothing to get excited about but fifteen minutes later the sky was on fire with the colours of the gloaming

This was at sunset


This was a quarter of an hour later


Absolutely beautiful sight which made the hike back to the car in the dark well worth it

Re: Wait for it :-)

The second shot is a cracker Greg.

I think these conditions, where the sun is below the horizon from ground level but still high enough to illuminate the underside of the clouds overhead provide more dramatic scenes than the actual sunset.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Wait for it :-)

Two very different but equally stunning pictures in the space of 15 minutes; sounds like a good deal to me!

Nice. I never think about collapsing my tripod until at least 20 minutes after sunset.

Re: Wait for it :-)

I would be really, really happy Greg if I had taken these.
I can't pick a favourite from the two, they are both lovely in their own right.

You're becoming a bit of an sunset expert Greg
Both shots stunning in there own right.
Isn't it interesting how the light changes so much in such a short space of time, illustrated well by both of your images here.

Re: Wait for it :-)

In the winter if it's cold enough there's also the possibility of a sun pillar after sunset or before sunrise.

These are both absolutely beautiful Greg. Well worth risking the quicksands of the Solway for.
