Apocalyptic sunset over Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan by 

I was back up at the Bunkyou Civic Centre yesterday, this time with one of my students. The sunset was extraordinary. It was impossible to control the lens-flare as I was shooting straight into the sun for this shot. Five-shot bracketed HDR with very little done to the colour. This is pretty much, apart from a bit of a shift in the tonal contrast, what the scene looked like through the lens.

    Apocalytic. I have seen Apocalypse Now, if that is of any use. I liked the bit about the surfing
