Shoreham Blue Hour

Photo of the Week by davesexton

This is Shoreham in West Sussex shot across the River Adur just after sunset. I like night scenes and Im particularly happy I have moved away from my Sony mirrorless system as night shots were often spoiled by unwanted artefacts. This was shot using my PENTAX K-1 with the HD PENTAX-D FA 24-70mm F2.8ED SDM WR lens.

Lovely rich colours. I like the shaft of light in the foreground which helps to balance the shot.

That's a gorgeous shot! Must get a K-1, but I don't know how to sell the idea to household management!
