A beautiful evening at Stanage. The sun went behind a cloud for 30mins but I kept hope, and set up to catch some Autumn colour in the trees. I was lucky - for 20 seconds as the sun edged below the cloud, the light was golden and perfect, and a boulderer was in action at the crucial time. Then the light was flat and gone. The bottom 3/4ths are straight out the camera, but I used exposure bracketing and then blending in PS to get the full dynamic range of the sunset in the final image.

Is that guy on the Pebble starkers?

As you say Dan, rather special light. How many times do we wait for the light and it just doesn't happen. Well done!

Thanks guys. The guy on the pebble was wearing a white t-shirt. Which was unusual and lucky as if he was wearing dark colours he'd be almost invisible.
