Sony a7 II, Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8, f/8, 1/25sec, ISO 400

On my way home from work one afternoon recently, I noticed a large thunder head forming in front of the setting sun in the west. When I arrived at the house I quickly set up my photographic gear and began shooting the cloud formations.

It wasn't until I had decided that the best of the light had faded away that the most amazing spectacles I had ever seen in my life started developing in the eastern sky opposite the sunset.

Here in the tropics, we don't get a lot of time to photograph sunrises and sunsets as they never seem to last more than a couple of minutes, so I quickly squeezed off a couple of captures to make sure I got at some record of this incredible event as I could.

I often think that I should really get up early one morning and capture some images of the sun rising over the corn fields, which cover so much of our beautiful region. Hoping that the sky colour wouldn't fade too quickly, I drove down to a friend's house where, fortunately, the full-flower corn field was lined up perfectly with the base of the sun rays.

It is a great testament to the low light capabilities of the a7 that I was able to keep the ISO down to 400 to avoid noise and still get a crisp hand held picture at 1/25sec.
