Sunset over boats

Trying to achieve a good balance with the sky and foreground. The light was disappearing very fast. Some PP work in lightroom using the adjustment tool (which is fantastic)

Am I getting obsessive with sunsets? Well, I think I am, but it's easy to do. Trying to capture that awe inspiring sight, that many people sit and watch on a daily basis.

With my new set of Lee filters, I want to try and capture more. With landscape photography the evening light is one of the best you can capture, those rich tones and beautiful subtle shades are a photographers dream.

However, I will try and capture other interesting sights too.

Golden boat

Taken at West Mersea in Essex. Being on an Island we get the best of both worlds, Sunrises and Sunsets. I have yet to get up earlier enough to do a sunrise shot. But over the winter, getting a great sunset is much easier.
