SUNSETS & SUNRISES
Often when photographs are submitted for judgement the comments are "not another sunset" - but why not! It is often one of the most spectacular moments of the day, and when combined with an interplay of clouds or twilight colours the scene can stop you in your tracks. And then there is the opportunity to see the sun setting over mountains, or into the sea (watch for the fabled green flash!) and it can be truly fabulous. And then there are the sunrises... and they are even better!!!
