I already did a brief ‘Merry Christmas’ post with the jist of my day, but the best part of the day wasn’t the presents, or (dare i say it) the Christmas dinner, but the walk i went upon with my family.
When I was younger we used to always go for walks along this pier, so going back all together was a joy in itself. There was a warmish breeze and a freshness to the air too. We walked with the wind and once at the end sat briefly on a bench before turning around and heading back to save the turkey from any possible charcoal state.
On the way back down the pier to the car, the sun behind us began to go down. My sister and I turned back just looked at the sky and went, ‘Wow’. I began to rant how I wish I could capture the beautiful sky as each photo didn’t remotely encapsulate mother natures wonder. Then, after multiple setting changes and a few test shots I got it. The sunset in all its glory. Love it!
These are my favourite photos to date, along with them being the first batch of photos that are completely manual.. Aperture; check… Exposure; check… WHITE BALANCE; check ;)
I shall have another post of the drive home as it too resulted in sunset gems. Part Two will be up tomorrow or the day after… or at least before the world ends ;)
Until next time,
