Photographer's Note

It is Saturday night and we have set anchor in the lee of Frigate Island, a small and uninhabited island on the southern side of the larger Union Island. Having been ashore to visit the small town of Ashton to search unsuccessfully for a restaurant, we return to the boat to start a barbeque as the sun goes down.

Despite the tranquil scene, the winds were still gusting, the boat was swaying as ever and I needed some perseverance in photographing the sunset. The view within the frame was ever changing as the boat drifted around on its anchor, as did the other couple of boats anchored within the bay. I tried various filters and different compositions as the boat changed angle and the sun descended over the horizon.

For this shot I used a Sunset 2 filter, though I later reduced the colour temperature of the RAW file to tone down some of the orange effect and straightened the horizon.
