Purple Haze

By BillyGoatGruff  
Good evening all.

Here's a little something from one of my many camping trips to south-west Cornwall.

I shot this last May from the field adjacent to where we camp.
It turned out to be a bit of a rush, as I'd quite forgotten quite how quickly the sun plummets to the horizon when it's determined to go to sleep!
We'd just returned to camp from a long day out and I'd barely had time to get my gear from the boot, run over the field (well, sort of waddle, really, overladen as I was), clamber over a broken gate and waddle to a suitable spot to make this composition, set up the gear, check a few dials and then get off only two frames before the sun disappeared completey.
In my haste I'd forgotten to reset the aperture to something sensible! Don't think it's too big a problem, though.

Worth the effort, I think.

Anyhow, hope you like it and thanks for stopping by (those of you that aren't in Rowardenanananan, of course!)
