Watching sunset after work


On friday I’ve finished my work a bit earlier and stopped to watch sunset on my way back home. Of course not only with my eyes, but also with camera sensors :-)

P.S. Black dot over trees on last photo is flying bird. There is whole flock of them if you’ll look carefully on lower left corner.

Incredible what you manage to o with your A200 and the Tamron lens. I’m just that bit jealous but it means I’ll just have to work harder on my technique. Thanks for sharing :)

Thanks for your comment! Tamron 55-200 is really great lens, especially when comparing image quality it delivers with its price. I guess it is best low-cost telephoto currently available. I still have lot to learn about photography too :-)
