9.03pm on the river Dee
Last evening, as I went to make a coffee, I noticed that the sun was almost setting, and as the sky was looking interesting, I tore down to the harbour with the dog…… he would never have forgiven me if I’d left him.
By the time the tripod was set up the sun was sinking into Stell Wood and there were some fussy little clouds catching the last rays. Though it was low tide; usually the least attractive time to picture the river, at least the contrasty light was bringing out the textures of the mud banks. I’ve reined in the colour of the sky as it was quite an unbelievable red.
