With autumn being officially just a few days away, I’m keen to get out my gear and explore the shores. Last night’s sunset was mighty. Strong winds, dark clouds and bursts of sunlight all contributed to a show of nature that’s hard to forget. I sat on the shore for a couple of hours, waiting for the right moment and taking many shots to make sure I came home with something special. The scene as a photograph may be slightly too busy in my opinion, but I wanted to get everything in one shot. The leaves on the shore indicate the incoming of autumn, while the sky had it’s own show going on. The waves were also grabbing my attention, splashing against some rocks that I’ve seen many times before. It’s an eyeful, but it was all worth taking in. This image was taken around 7pm at Kalmoniemi, Joensuu.
