Taken during the brief 90 seconds of colour I got … about the last gasp of light in the sky …. it just appeared and then disappeared within a very few minutes.

Nikon D80
Sigma 10-20 at 10mm
f/8 at 30 secs
No filters – just a hope that something would register on the sensor.

    Fantastic moody image, really love the atmosphere and tones, awesome work, you sure had a great time this trip!!

  • Thanks so much Simone!
    Yep – I think this time I have more ‘keepers’ …. last time, was literally my first coastal sunset and so I was perhaps a bit too eager. This time I had more time to think through my shots.
