    Worth it

    Light in the Med changes very quickly and one is left with very little time to capture that fleeting moment when reds appear in the sky before everything turns grey. I'll never forget this particular sunset because I had been suffering severe stomach cramps that afternoon but the changing light had me bewitched and rooted to that cliff-top, waiting for just the right moment.
    One lesson I learned from that shoot is to always pack a toilet roll in the kit-bag!

    Canon EOS40D with Tamron 10-25 at f8 set on manual [I always shoot manual] with an nd grad Cokin at the front. Captured in RAW and processed in PS. Tripod support and remote shutter release.

    C and C very welcome, thanks for watching
    Mark

    Great image, Mark. I can see why you say it was worth it and why you won't forget this sunset.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Yes Mark it was worth it. Very nicely done. Lovely image - would love to see a bigger view - say 1500 pixels wide.

    Breath-taking color, nice visual depth through use of foreground. As Dave suggests, it's a crime not to display this bigger.
    Well done

    Thanks for all he comments.
    I am presently at work in the North African desert - Libya to be exact and after last year's events, I learnt my lesson to leave my storage disc at home. This shot is a download from my posts on Deviantart, where all posts are in 72dpi. When I return home, in thre weeks' time, I will be able to post in larger size.
