I had spent a glorious week earlier this year (April 2011) leading a great bunch of clients on a workshop on the Isles of Scilly, off Cornwall, UK. Apart from the first day it has to be said that the weather was a bit hit and miss for photography. Nevertheless, a good time was had by all.
The group left the islands on the Friday, except myself and two others who had booked to stay an extra night. Wouldn’t you know it? That night the sky started to hint at a sunset. The three of us were eating at a restaurant near our accommodation and watched, and watched. What was it going to do?
Suddenly, this amazing sunset crashed onto the scene – beautiful rays, great coloured clouds, the works. NEVER have the three of us run so fast! Back to the Guest House for the cameras, and, just in time, we caught this!! Doesn’t it always happen this way?
Shot on a Nikon D300, using a Giotto’s tripod and a Sigma 24-70 f2.8 zoom lens set in Aperture priority on f18. Shutter speed was 0.4 sec. And, of course, the LensGuard was hanging off the lens!
