the sunset that never ends…

 Just a quick shot from Saturday evening… Andrew Brown spent the w/e with his family down the coast and we caught up for a shoot. I had high hopes for this twilight 24+hrs out but in the last few hours leading up to it I was concerned that the cloud had thickened up and approached a touch faster than I had anticipated.

  We went ahead anyway as it would be fantastic to catch up regardless.  Down on the beach we both thought that it was going to ‘bust’ but it turned out to be ‘the sunset that never ends’ !  With spectacular red hues persisting for almost half an hour in the cirrus. Longer twilights can be a feature of higher latitudes and this was a perfect example. Quickly just put this together to post on here tonight seen as I had not posted for a few days after being quite active last week with posting.

  1. Great to catch up mate and certainly cracked it for some good luck in the light stakes! Was worth the frozen hands…….and feet.

    That is an awesome composition. I think that I’m still jealous after seeing it in the camera.

    • yeah cold hands sucked – though I cop that most days at work at this time of year 😐

      It’s amazing how different two ppl’s shots can look for almost the same location – your’s is pretty sweet !

  2. Beautiful shot Tony, love the colours in the sky and reflecting off the water and rocks. It’s funny how sometimes just when you think it is going to be a bust something brilliant happens and you are thanking yourself for not packing up and leaving. Great capture.

    • hi Michael yeah you just need that little break in the right spot at the right time.

  3. Gorgeous ‘cold’ Winter light in this one Tony and I really like the composition as well. Is this a stitch?

  4. Great colour in the sky and awesome work with the stitching.
    This is the most miserable winter we have had in years.

  5. Looks like it was certainly worth the punt to go Tony!

    I always go when the call is dodgy…just in case!! Sometimes it works and sometimes not, but in this case for sure it worked!

    Nice shot.



    • yeah I agree Mark – I aqlways believe you have gotta be in it to win it and the more often you put yourself in it the better your chances.
