Default FZ35 Sunset

We've had some spectacular sunsets lately. These were taken from my backyard about 3 minutes apart as the sun went down. Straight out of the camera, 16:9 was the way to go!

Great shots shots Saly. In my part of the world the clouds tend to block out the sun,(and every thing else) my main hobby is astronomy, but it's been a while since I looked through the scope...

Astronomy, huh? You may be interested to know that I've been trying to hook up my Panasonic GF1 to my Celestron C-8. So far I've done some moon shots but not very good. Will keep you posted.

The first one looks nice, then you get the the third and the skys gone from nice to being so dramatic and ominous. Love it.

Great set.

Hope it is OK if I join in on this post. Have at last worked out how to upload images (ha! optimist!) There was an amazing sunset here a few days ago - I live on the edge of the Pennine hills, looking westwards over Manchester towards Wales. You might just spot a plane in one of the pictures on its descent to Manchester airport.

This FZ38 is a belting little camera! I took these just hand held but used the sunset scene mode (I don't normally use these modes but I was experimenting)










Hmm! As I preview these they have come out really tiny - what am I doing wrong? I copied the URLs from my album on here. Doh!

OK - sorted - 2 more posts & I've got it . . . . I think!!
