Another nice sunset after a fine day. Trying to second guess whether the sky conditions are going to generate a good display at sunset or sunrise is more a matter of luck than anything else. Often there appears to be a good run up but the display just fizzles, at other times a brilliant sunset appears out of the most unpromising of circumstances. This evening was no exception but things worked out nicely in the end, if only fleetingly. I spent a little more time resolving this sketch on site than I would normally do,  trying to slow down and observe a bit more carefully the effects as they appear.
