When I was in Wales last month I spent most evening attempting to catch a sunset on the coast or beside another body of water. After the sun had gone down on this night, our penultimate one of the trip, we walked along the shoreline trying to find some nice rock formations in order to make the best out of the blue hour.

The guy in this canoe either liked to go out at dusk, or was late back from a trip – but we saw him paddling hard to get back to the dock.

Light really was faded at this stage so I bumped up the ISO to 1250 and fired away as he went past us.

Speaking of Wales, I’m heading back there this weekend for a few days. I didn’t get to visit Nash Point on my previous visit, and really liked the Brecon Beacons area so am hoping to do both of those, plus maybe one or two other places if the weather is kind.
