Sunsets Over Moray Autumn 2016

Sunset over Craigellachie Distillery, Moray

First time I’ve really put any effort into capturing some of the magnificent sunsets we have over Moray and Speyside. Not ventured too far afield as these things pretty hard to predict, so it was really just a case of looking for near-clear skies around 3.00pm and then legging it as fast as I could up Ben Aigan at the back or dropping onto Viewfield road at the bottom. Results are mixed but some came out far better than I had expected. Autumn is a beautiful time of year and for some reason the sunsets seem a little more serene, and perhaps even a little more melancholy than they do at the height of Summer. Tried the bracketing and blending method on a couple. With the exception of the first, which had the camera resting on my office windowsill, all were handheld shots using a 200-300mm lens.
