First Summer Sunset

I have a thing for sunsets and I find my Nokia N8 captures them pretty well. I love the beautiful blend colours that smother the sky in the evening. Here in the East of England the land is flat and the skies huge. Instead of taking landscape photos, I call them cloudscapes. I took this…
