Nice sunset

Not a bad day today - bloody cold though. Maybe it won't be too bad taking delivery of a boat in the winter....

Nice sunset? - there's a classic British understatement. I'd say that that is a spectacular sunset!!! What camera & settings did you use?

Panasonic Lumix FZ 20 - got to be the best camera for the money EVER - all because of it's 12x optical Leica zoom with image stabilization built in - equiv 35 - 420mm zoom and most important - CONSTANT F2.8 all the way through!!!

Having said that most of these shots were on normal zoom settings. Set ISO to 50 and EV -1/3 for better colour saturation.

The shutter speeds were pretty low but the image stabilisation is brilliant.

The camera does really well into the sun - no whiting out or pixelisation.

HAving said all that thougH it was the sunset itself that REALLY made it - looks like it was taken in the tropics - in reality it was Burry Port near swansea and was just 2 C - brrrr
