Artist's Description


A low sun looms large in the port at Mali, Maldives. Shipping sits in the deepening gloom as the power of the sun is weakened by the sea mists.

I took this whilst waiting for a plane. Stuck at the airport for a long wait I took a stroll with the camera and when this was unfolding in front of me, placed the camera on a fence post and used the 2 sec timer to get a series of these as the sun slowly sank and disappeared. The sun changed from yellow to deep red as it sank closer to the horizon.

This picture is close to as-shot. I have straightened the horizon, darkened the sky a touch and added a small amount of sharpening. The sun is untouched – it is really that beautiful in the Maldives! I want to return!

Pentax *ist-D, Single frame, straightened and cropped.
