Late in the day
06-MAY-2010

Late in the day

It was late in the day when I got today's image - in fact I thought I'd have to content
myself with a boring pic of my computer desk as I still wasn't feeling well and took the
day off. There was, however, court copy to be written up, so after sleeping until
midday, I managed to do the stories and e-mail them into work in the afternoon.
It was only when I was helping my son with his homework that I glanced out
the window and saw a stunning sunset. I grabbed the camera, walked about
20 yards down the road and took this. It's probably a bit dark but it was the
best I could do under the circumstance and is certainly more dramatic
than my desk.

This is an excellent composition.

Pylons always get in the way of a Landscape shot, but in this case they compliment it very well.

That would have to be a pretty spectacular desk to beat this. Beautiful!

We've not seen the sun for a few days now Mairead so your pic is a welcome sight.

Wonderful sunset image, love the comp with the pylon silhouetts. v

Wonderful colours; good timing too. With the sun mostly gone and partially hidden by the trees it removes a lot of dynamic range issues that would have existed not long before this. I like the way you've divided up the space between the power lines on the right and the open sky in the top left corner.

Certainly is dramatic with the strong silhouettes of both pylons and trees.
