The sky lit up a treat this evening over Dorset.
A visit to Kimmeridge was on the cards after work, the 3rd visit in a week for me!
I was interested in shooting this wooden post knowing that the tide would be high enough to envelop it, creating a mysterious and evocative image.
I scrambled up Hen Cliff and watched the sun begin it's descent. I broadcast a live feed from here, it crashed at the very end meaning I didn't get the chance to save it. Probably a good thing though, I was waffling on in parts but a massive thank you to all of you who joined me, I hope I answered any questions that arose during the feed.
What followed was a burst of light, captured for posterity but then the colour began to develop... OMG... This is where it all fell apart. I was up and down the hill 3 times, racing between the wooden post and the crumbling cliffs - unsure what to photograph and all the while the sky was literally on fire in front of my very eyes.
Everything was glowing deep red from the cliffs to the shore and of course the glistening water.
It was quite simply one of the most intense sunsets and afterglows I've ever witnessed and in truth I feel I let it slip through my fingers through faffing around like a big sissy.
I'm still a bit dazed and confused, I hope this image goes some way to show you how crazy it was tonight.
Saturation turned down significantly on this baby!
