SUNSET ESPLANADE

By Imagephotographics
Morning Everyone !

Many thanks for all your comments and clicks on yesterdays (NO MAN FRIDAY) - Very much appreciated as ever.

Here is another taken on Wednesday afternoon on the way home from Jackson's Bay, we decided to stop off as it looked like there was going to be a good sunset. Had about half an hour or so to spare and got chatting to a lovely old couple, could see the light starting to change, and was itching to get away to take some shots. Then the rain came again, so had to go and shelter. Thankfully it stopped just in time, and the sky turned the most wonderful colours and the sunset was glowing on the wet boards - all helped for a nicer shot ! Just wished I'd realized we were going to end up there as I'd have taken a wider angle lens.

Was really a weird day weather wise - amazing I managed to get any type of shots really with the very quickly changing weather conditions.

Well, lets hope things improve soon, even if it's colder, much rather that, than all this wet windy weather.

Hope you all have a good day.

Chris

No, not an HDR, more or less straight from the camera, except for cloning out a sign and some dead flowers that were in the rails, and then just boosted the colour a bit.

That's as good as any shot I've seen at the pier Chris. Very nicely captured, and I think the wider lens would have not had the eye drawn to the sky in the same way. This lens has worked a treat.
