Bristol Channel Sunset

(viewed 2023 times)
Bookmark and Share
I was supposed to be taking people to the BBC Sports Personality of the Year in Sheffield today but the job got cancelled at the last minute.

So this afternoon saw me walking the dog the by the sea instead of being on the M1. And at least I got to see this fabulous sunset.

Strange to see the sun setting over the Somerset Hills on the other side of the Bristol Channel, rather than across the bay over Cardiff Airport as it does in the summer.

All these shots are virtually unedited, straight out of the camera - the top shot was taken with my old Zuiko 135mm lens, which with the 2x crop factor of Olympus digital cameras gives an effective focal length of 270mm.
