Award Shortlist   


By KathyW  
Last night I was just on the point of declining into a state of total stupor in front of The X Factor last night when I noticed the sky was a bit interesting.
Grabbed camera and mutts and legged it up the hill as fast as my increasing weight and age would allow. By the time I got there the sunset had fizzled to a dim glow and it was almost dark. Hanging on to one mutt (too much trampolining = sore leg = lead exercise only) and repeating to myself "I must get tripod, I must get tripod", managed to get a few shots, optimistically using the camera flash, and this is the best of a very bad bunch.
Oh well, at least the dogs were happy - they got an extra walk.

Kathy, I am thoroughly amused by your vivid explanations leading up to this outstanding example of photographic art...this would be so perfect to grace the cover of Farming weekly such is the quality in your exposure. I am impressed.

Magic lighting Kathy....
I think the little touch of fill in flash really adds to the image.
Well done.
