I knew this was one of those "once in a season" type of sunsets, so I waited until the moment was just right to capture this.
We know how the "moment" is so important when it comes to action shots but I reckon sunsets are also a matter of timing. And of course you can get up early hoping for that amazing sunrise and get nothing at all. That's part of the fun though, right?
Nik Software's Color Efex Pro was helpful in this image - have a look at it sometime,
