Red Skies At Night - A Photographers Delight? My SST 08/02

Wow, another week down and now we're now well into February. I've been wondering where the last few weeks have gone and I don't have to concentrate for too long to realise that most of them went on trying to work out what we are going to for a summer break this year. Thankfully now that's all in the bag so I hope to be able to get back to some more regular blogging, and continue to experiment with different photography styles.

Last week I used a substitute image as I wasn't able to copy the latest images from my memory card. Thankfully I found the USB cable for the camera so I'm now able to show the image I hoped to bring last week.

The subject is down to my son who alerted me with a shout of "Red Sky". I didn't have long to get some shots off before the sun went down for the night and there was certainly no time for a tripod so I had to keep the speed up high enough for a hand held shot whilst keeping it long enough for the low light.

I love the colours in the background with the near silhouette of the houses and tree to the fore. It sure was my delight for that night.
