Default usual sunset affair

really didn't have time for anything fancy since was stopped in a not very good place on the road so just jumped out and snapped afew shots handheld

both been cropped (gotta love those MP from the k5) but think they turned out not bad





should add i did try a panorama shot but with shutter speed of about 1/25 my panning introduced a noticeable blur =/

Beautiful shots. I love how, in the first one, the profile of the bridge closely matches the profile of the mountain.

Wonderful colors, very nice quick snaps. I didn't really notice the shape of the mountain behind the bridge at first, very cool!

you know until you pointed it out i didn't notice that the mountains echo the shape of the bridge or perhaps that should be the other way around but it part of what makes it a nice image so i'll just claim i saw it and knew subconciously =)

Of course your subconscious, artistic mind saw the echo in the shapes!!

Both are lovely sunset images, great capture of the subtle color...

Really nice! Where in Scotland (assuming that's where you took them) were you?

The photos were taken near Conel which is just north of Oban on the west coast of Scotland
