Down by the river with the dog at the end of a long and complicated day, hoping for a sunset but nothing happened worth shooting really. Mr Willis wouldn't pose either so as a last resort I turned the camera on myself, the first self portrait for a long time I think. The light was going rapidly as the sun had already set and the colour version looked a bit flat, so I tried this b&w conversion in color efex pro, with some slight tweaking in PSE. As self portrait's go I quite like this one, it captures the cold in the bitter north wind that was blowing across the flat landscape.
