So, after a few posts we’ve made it to the actual sunset shot. It really was a beautiful evening, I had half expected the lake to be full of fishermen but it was deserted, except for me, loads of birds and the occasional fish who broke water periodically.
Whilst sitting taking pictures of the sunset I watched to large, but very graceful herons fly overhead – I had completely the wrong lens on to photograph them and willed them to come down and join me on the lake…alas they flew by.
As the sun settled below the horizon a flock of (I guess) starlings gave an aerial display of coordinated flying before settling into the reed beds at the far end of the lake. Finally, both ducks and geese passed overhead, again strangely not coming down to the lake but flying strongly past to other destinations.
