Countryside sunsets

April 19th, 2011

I love sunrise and sunset – although I have to admit that I’m not often around to see the sunrise!

This series of images was taken one night in the last week of March – the 25th, to be precise. I’m lucky to live on the edge of a small village so I’m out in the countryside within a couple of hundred yards.

The first two images were taken with the basic telephoto lens supplied with my last camera: a Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6, and both at ISO100.

The sunset:

Almost gone:

The next two were both taken with my new toy, a Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-5.6 wide angle lens, once again at ISO100.
After the sunset, the glow:

And finally, Almost dark: (it was getting quite chilly by this time!)
