Winterton Boat Sheds

Spent an hour or so chasing the stupendous skies all over east Norfolk this afternoon
trying to find something dramatic to put in the sky, but only finally managed to find
somewhere good about an hour after the sun had set.

Amazing what a difference the light on the middle buidling makes to the compo.

Tremendous shot Steve. Love the juxtaposition between the rich reds and oranges of sinking sun and afterglow, and the bright almost-white light on the shed wall - the latter really focusses the eye, the former wraps the whole photo up in warmth. Beautifully sharp silhouette too. Well worth all your dashing around!! V

The unusual lighting makes a great image Steve,so your hour running around was not wasted..............sometimes the best images come from virtually very little,and you have one here.

As you quite rightly said the sky was amazing yesterday - gave one a warm glow inside and outside! Amazing shot too..

Fabulous simple structures and stunning sunset colors. Hey, some of the best colors are after the sunsets, like this gorgeous shot.

Excellent shot! I like the way the light is reflecting off the shed. Vote

I know that story all to well; Mother Nature is not a photographer. But you ended up with a wonderful image nonetheless. "V"

Doug Sherman and I agree we have probably missed many a great shot by putting the camera away too soon ;-)

Good job Steve. I chuckled a bit at your experience as I have found myself in similar circumstance many times, driving like a madman trying to find something to put in the foreground of a sunrise/set shot.
Guest 21-Dec-2008 21:20
I think you found it..pure magic..V
Aud Elise Sjøsæther21-Dec-2008 21:15

A beautiful image, I can only echo Maire's words.

Your chasing caught two light sources, artificial and natural, and between them you have turned the image of these boat sheds into something special.
