06.08.15 - Afterglow
It has been a while since I posted a sunset Daily, and this came as a bit of a last minute surprise last night. It had been a beautiful hot sunny day, I had lots of Daily contenders from various shoots, then at about 8-30pm I saw colour developing in the sky and decided to leave the settee in front of the TV for a while and check it out! The river is only about 5 minutes walk away, I took a series of shots as the sunset developed, some of them to merge later into panoramas like this. I'd actually left the riverbank to return home and happened to look behind me one last time, and saw the colours coming back with a vengeance. So I ran back and just managed to grab 2 quick shots of the rich afterglow, and then it was all gone in a few seconds. I love this spot by the big river bend for sunsets. The poplars on the left reflect nicely in the water, and depending on the time of year the colours fill most of this section of sky.
