Hues of blue
One has to move fast when shooting sunsets as the light changes so quickly. When combining rapidly changing light and long exposure photography you need to be on your game - a mistake in overall timings can set you back and having to start again may mean the beautiful light you started with, has gone. This is a 5 minute exposure on the south-eastern side of Derwent Water in the Lake District in England. The combination of long exposure and a very lazy wind that evening worked well - the clouds in the sky are moving creting an effect like a paintbrush but I like how the detail in the pink clouds can still be seen.
