Belmont Sunset

Beautiful sunset over the lake at Belmont yesterday evening. There were some very interesting cloud formations and at one stage a plane went across as well, leaving a trail in its wake. It was a lovely sunset.

I decided to shoot a couple of panoramas to capture a bit of a different, wider perspective. Panoramas can be quite tricky to stitch with water but these ones came out well and they work well with the other shots.

Panorama of the Lake

Panorama of the Lake from Belmont

To me peace is
Sitting by the water
And watching the world
Go by

After a few weeks of really cold, wintery weather, we had a lovely warm day yesterday and I decided to wander down to the lake to take some photos and shoot the sunset.

When I reached the lakefront it was almost the end of the golden hour and the lovely glow was starting to catch some of the clouds as well. It was a beautiful scene and I wanted to capture as much of it as I could so I decided to do a panorama.

Normally I don’t like doing panoramas over water as it makes stitching the images together much harder but I thought the water looked still enough to give it a try. So I took six images handheld and it stitched together quite well in the end.

I really like the final photo. I think it captures the scene well and I like how enormous the lake feels, almost like you’re being swallowed by the water. It really does feel that impressive in person too.
