After a wee walk round Hoddom with John & Jenny looking for “Signs of Spring”, we decided to toddle down to Powfoot to see if we could catch a decent sunset. Although you get some amazing sunsets there, it’s not the most photogenic of places as it’s very difficult to find some foreground interest for the composition. Anyway, I decided to get myself settled amongst the reeds and bushes at the top car park with the tripod and wait for sundown. There was a slight breeze blowing the reeds and bushes, so I didn’t want to use too slow a shutter speed, and I like to keep my Iso as low as possible. After loosing off a few shots, I’d settled on f8 – 1/80sec and Iso100 when the Lone Ranger came riding out out of the sun and into the shot and as luck would have it, paused for a few seconds. The second shot is very similar and was taken earlier from a different position amongst the reeds f10 – 1/50sec – Iso64.
