Evening glow

Another piece of serendipity today which just goes to show the value of keeping a camera handy and being alert to the opportunities. This shot was not planned at all. I was in Lundin Links for another purpose and was ready to leave but a traffic accident meant I could not get out of the car park. So, I got my camera kit backpack out of the car and set off for a walk to pass the time. 

This view met me from behind the clubhouse at Lundin Golf Club. As the sun was setting the golden glow made for a nice warm looking sky nicely picking out the clouds. The view is across Largo Bay. The wind turbine generators sit on the site of the old coal fired Methil power station and now stand like clean energy sentinels in contrast to the chimney and generator building of old. Across to the left of the shot are the Pentland Hills just south of Edinburgh. The arrangement of water, land, sky and lighting really appealed to me and, once again, was pleased to have my camera handy.

This was shot in RAW and minimally processed for highlights and contrast – I’ll probably do some more fine tuning when I get back to base and can see this in Lightroom, but it’s likely to be with the lightest of touches.
