windmills at sunset

Sailors must be delighted

| Between fires and tempestuous weather, we have been treated to some spectacular sunsets and sunrises lately. At last Friday's sunet I drove to the train station where there is a an unobstructed view across the valley floor to see if I could get a few good snaps.

Rather, I should say to the train station "where the only obstructions to the view are windmills" — hundreds and hundreds of windmills. I set the camera on a tripod and used the remote control to trip the shutter. Apart from having to take a flashlight and magnifying glass to see the silly little icon in the LCD panel it resulted in a few good pics. This was done with the "Program" setting, telephoto zoom extended to 135mm. I confess to a bit of photo editing to darken the shadows, producing the stark relief against the sky, but that's it.
