The conditions looked good, the bank of cloud was moving very slowly. There was a clear strip of sky along the horizon. These were the ideal conditions for a good sunset, as when the sun sinks down to the horizon there is a chance that it lights up the underside of the bank of cloud and gives a wonderful display of colours. In an ideal world this would happen all the time, but on this occasion it was not to be.
I still managed to get a couple of images which were pleasing to me. No great show of reds or oranges in the sky though but a slight tinge of blue mixed in with the grey certainly helped lift the sky. This is Saltcoats beach looking over towards the Isle of Arran in the distance.
Another image which I think is the stronger of the two. Closer to sunset and a better foreground and more interesting sky.
Another nice day on Saturday. As the afternoon wore on the conditions looked good for some shots. I decided to head out for an hour or so down to the beach at Saltcoats to try and capture the sunset.
In the end I was rewarded with a bank of cloud moving in, which was turned an angry shade of red for about 5 minutes after the sun had set behind the Isle of Arran. Another trip well worthwhile, especially when it’s only a couple of minutes down the road.
