M-Car Sunset

I've been waiting for the skys in Derby to light up in the magic hour for weeks and tonight they did.

 

Living in quite a built up area its difficult to find a spot where you can see no buildings on the horizon but I've found my spot now ;) I had no tripod and nothng to steady me so the ISO had to get whacked up a little. I find myself using the smaller 17-55 f2.8 lens far more often these days. I'd love to experiment with an EF-S 10-22mm but I don't have the funds for one right now.

 

I am pretty happy with the results though. The sky looks like the world is about to end.
