Week 2 – Sunset Subjects

Sunsets are commonly photographed due to their striking nature and vibrant colours. I’m always keen to capture a good sunset whenever I see an opportunity, whether it’s an interesting landscape or a more dramatic one than normal.

The Sunset Challenge

I wanted to show sunsets in another light (no pun intended!) by removing the idea of the sun as the main subject. Instead I used the glorious colours as a backdrop for a different subject. This led me to a local field on a long summer’s evening with an interesting variety of plants coming to seed. Here are some of my favorite from that evening.

 Of course I had to include some sunset photos! Especially with the suns rays slicing through the sky.
