I went down to Compton Bay yesterday evening in the hopes of getting a sunset, also to try a long ish exposure shot, this is one that I managed to get Smile And if I do say so myself I am rather pleased with it Smile Certainly won't be getting any shots like this today, very grey and over cast today :-( . Anyway hope it appeals

Thank you all for all your C&C's very much appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look

Hugh

Gorgeous colours and with that tranquil feel which I think comes with these long exposures.

A beautiful sunset captured. The driftwood makes a nice foreground interest and depth. Deep

It's a monster skulking back out to sea.
Love the use of portrait. It creates a direct relationship between foreground and horizon.
