Tonight I decided to try an experiment I’ve been wanting to do for a while…

So I set off, rugged up warm

Tripod in hand

wide angle and remote shutter switch

and loaded with plenty of patience.

The plan was to capture the life of a sunset

One photo every minute or so

and then merge them into one panoramic style shot, that blends from the start to the end of the event

gradually showing the sunset evolve

and the change in colour.

However I hit a snag…

The sunset tonight didn’t turn out as fantastic as it had promised

There were no clouds to capture the colour change

so the shots look pretty much the same from end to end.

Despite that – 1 1/2 hours of blip time was nice, relaxing.

And not all was lost, as I hound this hidden in the middle of my shots.
