At this point, from my vantage point at the summit of Ingleborough, my camera had become so cold, that the lens I was using failed to focus properly beyond about 120mm focal length - so this shot (the sharpest out of the set) is still quite soft - but I couldn't not record the crazy colours in the sky that evening.
The last moonrise of the solar year...

You did well, although I was looking forward to the evening pics!

but none of the shots into the sun worked - too much low level haze & no clouds for the sun to reflect off as and after it set... as well as lenses malfunctioning! This was taken about 20 mins before sunset itself, so I guess it counts as a sunset shot...?
