Ochiltree by FlippinPhil Ochiltree by FlippinPhil
Ochiltree, West Lothian
Scotland.


As I was driving home from a tiring day of work, I knew I was going to head straight back out with my camera. The sun was giving the land some beautiful light. Clouds were present, but not a lot, so I had to be patient to get them in the shot as I wished. I waited for the sun to fall further, and further to capture the pink in the clouds that you see. As for the moon being in the shot, I did not expect to see this at all, but was delighted when I noticed it in the sky. :)

This was taken with my Sigma 70-300mm APO Super DG lens.

I hope you all enjoy :heart:

This is really rather nice Phil, one of your best I think, the lighting is excellent and the moon gives the shot that little bit extra.
