I’m taking a complete flyer by putting this photograph on the blog. It’s of a sunset I captured in the Cotswolds earlier this week.

When I saw this sunset over the Cotswolds, I had to stop the car to get the picture.

I wasn’t sure the picture was all that good but when I posted a similar shot to my Instagram feed, I got some lovely comments, especially about the colours. Seeing as other people thought it was a good picture, I thought I’d post it here as well!

The picture was taken not too far from the town of Burford. Helen, Izzy and I were were travelling along back roads on the way to visit my parents. We rounded a corner and this was the view we were presented with.

Normally my kids object when I stop the car and start taking photographs. On this occasion, however, they were only too happy to get out of the vehicle and gaze in wonder at what was a spectacular sunset. While there are some amazing colours in the picture, I simply wasn’t sure that what I captured did the sunset justice.

    1. Thanks Nigel, I could perhaps have increased the exposure but when I tried that I lost much of the colour so kept it dark.

  1. Wow! How big does the sun look? I think it’s fab. I love that your eye is drawn immediately to the sun but the scans down and there’s more detail. #MySundayPhoto

    1. Oh the kids were delighted to see this. No complaints whatsoever. Living on the side of a hill we don’t really get to see sunsets, certainly not like this so it was a great opportunity.

  2. Stunning sunset, without doubt one of those moments to capture.

    I’ve never been to the Cotswolds…we need a family road trip!

    Have a great Sunday and thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto

    1. Oh the Cotswolds are awesome. Move away many years ago but they’re still what I call home and sunsets like this come as part of the package.

    1. That is such a lovely comment! I see what you mean, it does look a bit like the Lion King doesn’t it?

  3. All the red looks so fiery and it really is stunning. Really well captured for a shot on the go!!

    1. I htink you can see why I stopped the car. Was amazingly actually because you could clearly see the sun dipping below the horizon.

  4. That’s a beauty. Love the overpowering sun. It smacks you in the face yet it’s so suttle. Great shot

    Beautiful shot. The colours are beautiful and I love the haziness of it too. #mysundayphoto

  6. Sure it’s a good picture, I love how the sun is even more of a focal point because of the darkened fields and how the strands of cloud play across the sunset.

  7. #mysundayphoto simply stunning and well worth stopping for, glad the kids enjoyed it also. This is a new part of the world for me to explore now as the youngest child has recently moved to the Cotswolds
