Yesterday afternoon driving home we were treated to an exceptional, fiery sunset. Stuck on a dual carriageway with nowhere to stop, I was despondent that by the time we reached a suitable point where we could turn off and find something remotely appropriate for foreground interest, the light would have gone.
Thankfully I was wrong, and I got some shots. These two are probably the best.
Photographs never seem to do full justice to events like this. Nothing, except our eyes, can capture the full scale and grandeur of sunsets that can be such a visual feast. It’s a long time since I’ve seen one around here that’s had colours quite as dramatic. Enjoy this one.
