The Sunrise Sunset Fraggle report


It’s ages since I’ve been able to take a sunset shot, but I do like them, so am posting some of the ones I’ve taken along the way in the past few years..

Tunisian Sunset

Tunisian Sunset 2008

Back in 2008 photography was just for holidays for me, and in Tunisia I had a little Fuji SX2000. I didn’t know about RAW, or post processing, or anything to do with photography, just point and shoot and hope to capture some good memories. I got up at 6am on the day we left to get the sunrise from our hotel balcony.

I think these 2 pictures pushed me into photography and by the time we went to Cyprus in 2009, I had a Nikon D90 and began the learning curve in earnest ..

Still with my D90 I also then got PS Elements and Nik FX pro for processing..

We also went for a weekend to Belgium in September that year, and I took this from the ferry leaving Hull

2012 was a good year for sunsets ๐Ÿ™‚ in October Sophie, Mike & I went to visit a waterfall up north, and on our way back home stopped for this view..

  3. Drudge Bay is my favorite in all these awesome sunsets . They always create the biggest emotions on the memory lane. I just came in from the balcony watching a “little” sunset over here and now I am watching the “big” ones. Thanks for sharing, Fraggy.
