    I've decided to split my photos up because there's just so many of them I want to show you guys and gals. So I'll do it over a few days. Levels changed in almost all of these - My camera does not like trying situations.

    These Photos were taken at Saint Malo at sunset (duh! hehe) 9:45pm. I still can't get over how late it stays light here!

    1. The castle walls (as you'll see in my next installment of pics) are actually a pretty boring grey to dark grey colour so I was stoked when I saw this cool redy-orangey colour!

    5. This is almost the same pic as above - but I included the rocks at the bottom.

    6. Awwwwww. I think this is so romantic.

    7. I laughed out loud when this seagull flew down beside me and just sat there watching the sunset.

    8. These last two pics are from a town called Heulgoat where I did some hiking in the forest. This isn't really a sunrise as such - I only took it at 9am but I guess the sun is still rising so does that count? :lol:

    Those are all really good shots, you definitely timed it well to get the nice warm light! The last couple really look good as well, great series.

    I like them :D I like them a lot! You've done a great job.

    My fav. is #5. though it misses sun sinking in the sea, I think those two people on the rocks really emphasizes the shear size of it all.

    Looking forward to part II!

    I was actually trying to find someone to go with but everyone from uni went back home to their countries/cities so I figured I'd just go on my own. :-( I should've posted an invite up here! It's so expensive to go on a holiday by your own - just because of the hotels!! It's crazy.

    Thanks for your comments everyone.

    Meysha well done. Thats quite a whack of good pictures. I find the evening sun does such wonders to a photograph and it really worked well in your castle pictures.

    Really nice work. I enjoyed the series. I'm normally a sunset girl, but the last picture is my hands down favorite. The reflection in the water is wonderful. Great job.

    I liked 7 and 9. I think they are really full shots. Well balanced and with that certain zing(can't think of better word) to them.
