Blackhead Backdrop

This sunset was taken on the way home from Tunnel Beach. It wasn't on my itinerary that night. You may have seen Blackhead before. Blackhead is the rocky outcrop in the distance of "The End of a Long Day". On the other side is Blackhead Beach, a popular haunt for Dunedin surfers.

What makes this photo interesting for me is the light, which is fantastic, and the wide angle created by seamlessly "stitching" a series of photos together. The fact that the photos were taken handheld and the location was ad lib meant I was very pleased with the result.

The photo was taken at about 8:30 pm in mid January.Camera: Sony F828 Settings: 1/640s, f6.3, ISO64, focal length 22mm
