Martlesham Sunset Multiplied

The sunsets in Suffolk are legendary. Beloved of the painter William Turner, I understand that they are produced by the particular quality of the misty droplets in the air from the North Sea which refracts the light in a certain way. We had some truly spectacular sunsets while we stayed in Suffolk and this one was taken through a window where the foreground was filled with the rooftops of the neighbouring houses and the trees. Once again, a multiple exposure showed the scene off to best advantage. My friend who lives in this house sees these kind of sunsets every day (when there is actual sun…) from her kitchen window! Just imagine.

  1. Very beautiful Ellie! sorry for being so much absent, but I amthinking of you! It is too much I have to handle daily and the hours pass to fast, the days are too short. I am fine so far with ups and downs, managed the wintertime, now I am glad about the spring! I hope you are well!! Hugs Ursula

    1. Dear Ursula,
      I was so happy to hear from you as I have been missing you lately. Thank you for your visit and the lovely comment. It will be great to get an update on what’s been going on with you when you are able and I hope, too, that Spring comes soon and cheers everyone up! Love to you. xo

    1. Hi Sharon. Thank you so much for the comment! This is my friend’s window, in England. She does have a wonderful view from that window, you are right! This was taken during our visit to England at the end of last year.

    1. Thanks Simon. It’s a technique that can work well in a situation where the foreground might be a distraction or even detract from the image as in this case. It can work, you just never know. I was pleased with this result.

    1. Thanks so much Ellie. Multiple exposure can be a good way to show natural beauty in settings where the location might otherwise spoil it.
