Sometimes you become particularly aware of a "Shepherd's Delight" sunset and today was one of those occasions. Getting the exposure right is always a problem as you don't want a completely dark foreground, yet if you take a slow enough exposure to get some light into the foreground the sky becomes over exposed and it appears too light with little of the red that makes it so spectacular.

I had to use a tripod to make sure the camera was held steady enough. It turns out to have been taken at 1/7th second, which didn't really get it right...

I feel the second shot is better. This one was a 1/3rd second exposure.
