      Lovely.
      I got a little into photography back in the 35mm days.
      I used to go to the TT Races then, will have to root out some prints and scan them.
      All I have now is a point and shoot and have forgotten all I learnt about f stops, exposure & lighting etc so whenever I try anything it doesnt seem to work out.
      I should do some research but never seem to have time.

      With an modern automatic camera, the most important factors are positioning, timing and framing.

      If you have one with a good refresh rate, then you can catch action shots quite easily. Even something like catching a Leopard opening his mouth can benefit from a fast camera, but positioning, timing and framing are still important factors.

      These can be practised with most cameras, so give it a go.

      Anyway, back on topic, the photo attached was taken last year during the period when the Icelandic Volcano was erupting. It provided for some spectacular shots across the country, but I could only take some local shots.

      Re: Sunsets

      Here is an old one of mine from when I was working in Egypt.

      I have removed a couple of scratches & tweaked the colours a little as it was scanned directly from the negative.

      With modern digital cameras it is far easier to adjust the colours before printing. With older cameras filters & the right film helped. The camera I had then was a simple instamatic.

      Do a google for hyperfocal distance, if you set your camera up for it you can get away with murder cos it removes all the focus and shutter lag

      Come on people, rule if thirds.

      If you going to get into hyper-focal distance, aperture settings and exposure at least remember rule number one. Frame your shot with the rule of thirds and you'll end up with a much nicer shot
