Last Saturday, I was treated to the most stunning sunset at the woods, made the more amazing in that it was unexpected. So unexpected that I went for a walk round the woods carrying only my small Canon EOS-M camera, rather than my larger 5D3. It started with some lovely warm colours in the clear evening sky, but I often find that a clear sky doesn’t produce the most spectacular images. But we were in luck! Out of the shadow of the woods came a band of cloud, and this promised to produce some wonderful colour.
So it was that I stopped snapping images at the bottom of Betty’s Wood and walked briskly up to the top of the hill to capture the last rays of the sun as it set over the fields opposite our entrance. Starting off with peach and orange colours, the sky turned vivid scarlet and magenta before the sun slipped below the horizon. Here are a few images from the series.
