SUNSETS

This time of year we have some amazing sunsets and I have been trying to find the best way to take the photos. Clearly my shot in an earlier post was not right as the flash went off. I found that automatic setting captured the colours well but clearly no good with the flash. I found the presetting for sunset very disappointing in that it lost the true colours.
So I have been reading and reading and have an incling that I need to play around in Manual, TV and AV settings so here are a few of my better shots. I think this is going to be a very steep learning curve. Rebecca help is definitely needed or any other offers of advice gratefully received.

The new neighbour at the bottom of the garden has been decorating the bedrooms with the lights on. It was really inconsiderate of him as it really spoiled many of the shots to have an illuminated window in the foreground which had to be cut out off the better photos.

We are lucky living on a bit of a hill because we get to see some lovely skies.
