[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi guys thought I'd post something a little different today. This stunning sunset amazed me, I have a wide shot showing a turbulent and dynamic sky but this one focuses on the sun burning through the clouds before setting, really lucky to get this as it disappeared seconds later.

Cropped for improved composition.

Aren't those intense moments exhilarating?....when you know it is going to disappear in seconds and you want to freeze the moment. This is an amazing capture. The panoramic crop and the interesting silhouetting skyline make for a very effective composition.

Hi Simon,
What an astonishing sight! I can't think of anything useful to say about the shot, so I'll make it a comment. TFS!


Simon says:"...really lucky to get this as it disappeared seconds later" and I agree!

Many a time I can hardly get to the right spot to snag a spectacular moment! You did well to catch this one.
I like your compo, and esp. the colours.
Nice natural phenomena captured really well. Tfs. Jay
