Artist's Description

One evening on holiday, I decided to go out and take shots along St. Ouen’s Bay, Jersey. I made my way down the road known locally as ‘Five Mile Road’, although it’s real name is ‘Le Route de Mielle’ which is of Norse origin: “Mielle is Norse and means Sand Dunes so it was the road through the sand dunes”. I stopped along the dunes that edge the beach there with a view of La Rocco Fort in the distance. The colloquial name ‘Five Mile Road’ comes from the fact that “if you stand at Corbiere and look at L’Etacq that is about five and a half miles worth of distance.” This is such a beautiful place to come in an evening and view the sunset. I took a lot of shots of this lovely evening sky, but forgot that my settings on the camera were still set at ISO 1000 for a another shot I was taking the previous evening. By the time I realised my mistake, it was too late and the sky was quickly disappearing. Luckily, I think they still managed to turn out pretty good. Do please view this shot larger to get the full effect of the evening experience.
