Sunset, Picket Post, New Forest, Hampshire
Last post from me for today. This shot was taken this week, following a very brief diversion off the A31 driving through the New Forest this week.
As someone once said, Scott Kelby I believe, if something grabs your eye stop and see what it was.
It was the sky in this case. The sunset. I literally pulled off the A31, parked up just down the road, stopped for 5 minutes and then the moment was gone so quickly.
I had time for a quick look around, took some wide shots, then went to the tree, and I managed to capture this. The tree makes the shot for – that and the sky of course.
Together they make a really captivating image, which I have to say I think I photographed rather well. Of course I would say that. But seriously, let me know what you think of this image. It has a nice feel to it, and I love the depth of colours and the textures within the image.
Taken on my 6D this time with my 70-200 lens. I took a couple of wide shots but they were rubbish to be honest. But after a quick change the telephoto worked much better.
I hope you have enjoyed the images I have posted today – please come back to my blog tomorrow for another post about something to do with me and my photograhy at
