Parton beach sunset

Conditions seemed favourable on Friday so I nippped down to the beach for sunset on Friday


Just after sunset


Parton beach sunset wash in by Alf Branch, on Flickr


The tide was going out and some of the sand beyond the rocks was exposed as I was well into the blue hour this is an 8 second exposure with just an ND grad f8 ISO 200

Both nice, Alf, but it's No2 for me as well, I like the cooler tones and that it's a much calmer scene.

Another vote for the second one. Love the front to back focus on it.

Re: Parton beach sunset

Superb as always Alf. Actually I think I prefer the first one especially if I crop some of the foreground to put more emphasis on the middle distance and the background scenery.
