Lookout Mountain, facing east, away from the sunset.  Sigma 24mm f/1.8 at f/10, ISO 800, 6D, hand-held, 1/60.  A few tweaks in LR, cropped toward the bottom of the frame in 16:9 aspect because it suited the composition.  The unaltered RAW looked very gray and dull (especially on the computer), moreso than it looked to my eyes.  This is slightly richer in the sky than it looked to my eyes, but I like how you can see some deep red in a narrow band toward the horizon, besides the reds on the clouds closer to the camera.  I like that this has so much color, yet I am 180 degrees away from the sunset.  Probably would have been better at f/8 or f/9.

This Sigma lens doesn't really have vivid color or contrast, but I think it's a good overall compromise at its price point...and its a macro, with AF.

Still trying to find the right spot for getting a good shot of both the modern wind farms and old coal power station together, without falling in the river. To date just cant find the spot.

Nice shot but could it have used a little less of the tree?

Thanks Carl. The tree is actually hiding most of the blow out from the sun which was stillmpretty bright. I shot it hand held so couldn't B&B. If I had shot it properly then I would have probably gone for a wider vista and balanced the whole of the sky. I may still do that. As it is I think the tree stops you from falling out of the picture on the right.

It's just that the tree takes up a bit more area of the composition than it should, but that's just my eye and brain talking.  Certainly you do have a point !  Have a crack at some of my pics if you like.  Most of mine are shot hand-held as well (who has time or forethought to run back, get the tripod, mount the camera...before the clouds change and the sun sets farther?  Some of the best shots are offered by nature when you have no time or planning!  I've missed most or all of them...).
