Skywatch Friday: Inferno Sunset

Inferno Sunset 2

Taken on August 28th.

This sunset was so spectacular I took 6 photographs of it and the cloud formations as they passed over our garden, this probably one of our best ones yet I think. I used Landscape scene mode to shoot them, normally I would use the Sunset one, however that was a little too red in colour for this and the camera wouldn't focus in Automatic so I chose the infinity focus mode.

The Weekend in Black and White: Farm

Sometimes Only Black + White Will Do

The Weekend in Black and White

In this case, rather than photoshop a colour image to Black and White, I decided to use the in camera black and white filter to photograph the side of this barn building with this bric-a-brac.
