Catching the Sunset

Catching the Sunset. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

A little more than a week ago we headed up to Dingli for some night photography. We thought well to pack a picnic and head there earlier, so that we could see the sunset, enjoy our picnic, and then get ready for some night shots. Of course we weren’t the only ones around as sunset approached, it’s a great place to just soak in the views. After a few exploratory shots with my new wide angle I swapped lenses and started looking for details. I thought this view of the radar station against the copper sky looked great, and when a visitor took out their mobile to snap a photo I just couldn’t resist.

I’ve said many times how much I enjoy using my Sigma 150-600mm, as it’s so great at isolating such details. I often think this is exactly the lens I was secretly looking for when I started with photography more than twenty years ago. Without realising it at the time, of course.
