Hi.

16th April last year. The evening of the Icelandic ash. The sun had just disappeared behind the Welsh hills.

This is the RAW conversion with a 16:9 crop and a bit of sharpening for the downsize. That's it.

Bombs Away!

Thanks for stopping by.

I really really like this image Bill. I think it's the sky with the bridge being dark. Well taken

The 16:9 crop works perfectly with this bridge, particularly from your side!! That is one heck of a sunset, and I can even see Twmbarlwm behind. Stunning clarity and worthy of the wards that you received here Bill. Great work.
