his evenings sunset was a complete surprise. Well not the sunset itself (that happens every night, ha ha), but during the afternoon the high cirrus cloud, was soon joined by thicker mid level cloud that soon became overcast. The sunset at about 5pm looked like it was going to be a doozy. So with that in mind, I was intending to head to the beach solely to attempt some long exposures with the big stopper and have a muck around with the camera. Well I was in for a surprise. The mid level cloud all of a sudden started to thin out to reveal the high stuff, and the sun decided to pop its head out just before it dipped below the horizon, creating some breathtaking colours. Pinks, reds and yellows painted the sky, reflecting on the shoreline. It was truly epic, and I just loved being down there.
