Two evenings ago, the sky was just mesmerising as the sun sank low. Contrails, etched across the sky, were lingering longer than usual, blown and spread wide by high altitude winds, intermingling with milky strands of cirrus cloud. This was a spectacle to be captured before it evaporated, and within a few minutes, the heavens were wiped clean by an unseen hand and the magic was gone. How fleeting these images can be.
I took quite a few images, searching for the best viewpoint and the right framing from the field beyond the end of our garden. Should I or shouldn’t I include the horizon? Zooming in on the central unfolding design in the sky was one picture. Using the local horizon as a base was another.
Each tells a different story. But which one works best? Do comment and let me know which you prefer and why?
