I'd been out at a nature reserve photographing birds when I noticed that the sky was starting to look good for a sunset so I rushed to this top secret spot somewhere in Wales not to miss it.
What a lovely sunset it was too, quite unusual in that there was this band of dark cloud right across the sky so I had 2 sunsets in one you could say.
Trouble was that, not expecting to be shooting a sunset I didn't have a tripod or filters or a coat with me and I was standing on muddy grass with nothing to rest the camera on so I had to hand hold the "Bigma" in the cold breeze, shivering, but surprisingly the shots look ok with little or no sign of camera shake.
f9, 1/400th second, ISO 200, 75mm focal length.
