Sun Sink Nairn Photo Contest Finalist
Sun Sink Nairn
Sun Sink Nairn
Location: By Nairn, Highlands, Scotland.

This is only the second occasion I have seen this effect. The orb of the sun has dropped into the cool dense mist of the sea haar forming over the coast of the Moray Firth turning it a fiery orange colour which subsequently turned blood red. I opted to compose this in a vertical composition with the majority of the view taken up by the orange coloured sky and trees centrally placed. I hope that this might be selected for a strong graphic front cover shot in a glossy magazine.

Pentax 67 II, 200mm lens, Fujichrome Velvia F11 at 1/4 sec, 0.9ND grad filter to hold contrast levels.

Terrific, capture, Ian! I've actually stopped at Nairn briefly on the way to Inverness. A beautiful place and you have captured this scene wonderfully.
