Good to get in the water after a scorching hot day.

TOH, it was a fantastic day, wasn't it. And a nice way to finish on the beach.

Euphro, thanks!

Tim really loves to get his feet wet doesn't he?
Does he ever swim?

Hi It is a stunning picture-
I live in Wales, and the sunset is sometimes like this as well . I doubt my photo would be as good (canon power shot around £60.00 from Argos). I also see the sunrise, maybe I will take a picture of it - it was too bright to look at this morning, so I reckon a picture would just be white blurr --I don't suppose you have any advice how to take a picture of a bright sunrise?

Joker, well actually he's not normally that keen to get his feet wet, but he doesn't seem to mind going in the sea. Usually he only goes in very shallow water, but lately he's started going in a bit deeper. Might be to do with the hot weather perhaps. He never swims, though. Someone once told me that greyhounds don't think they can swim, and I think that might well be true.

SendMyCard, thanks. My camera is nothing special either, a tiny Casio Exilim ex-z750 which cost about £80. And quite a lot of my photos are taken with my mobile phone which has a very basic camera.

SMC, just point your camera in the right direction, try to keep the actual sun itself out of shot if it's not already below the horizon and the camera's software will do the rest (ie darken everything down).
Using (fill-in) flash will illuminate any subject in the near foreground too and still give you that lovely orange glowing backdrop.
Just snap away, give it a go, it's not as if you're wasting film.
