This image of sunset colours was made looking west from the eastern shore of Lake Pukaki, using the 'intentional camera movement' technique. I enjoy creating these abstract images when either the light is not quite right for a true sunset composition, and/or the subject is not particularly interesting for a static image. In this case, it was the latter.
We’d had a clear sunny day and without a cloud in the sky the sunset was always going to be uneventful. The colours, however, did lend themselves to being blended into this abstract image, achieved by panning the camera quickly through both vertical and horizontal planes with the shutter open. I was pretty happy with this attempt.
