Sunset on Fire by andyhutchinson Sunset on Fire by andyhutchinson
Went out to get a carton of milk and noticed that the sunset was looking interesting, so diverted to the nearby Shoalhaven river to see if I could get any interesting shots. The tide was high and I had to wade out into the water waist-high (shorts got a bit damp) with my tripod to get a clear shot of the river. The sunset turned spectacular pretty quickly and shortly before it disappeared, a lone pelican glided into view. In the background are thousands of roosting seabirds just behind the local oyster beds. Took this shot with an ND4 on my Canon 550D with the standard kit lens. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Edit: Just re-uploaded this with a new edit. I think this is a lot better now.
