I’d been looking for a sunset in the western evening sky when a jagged crack of orange appeared.
We watched as that blaze of zigzagging orange grew and grew and then shrank away into the grey it first emerged from. Oh well, not tonight I thought and put the camera away.
Twenty minutes later after I had settled into other things I looked out of our window to find a fiery orange orb silhouetting the Gaisberg off in the distance.
I grabbed my camera, raced outside and … nothing! No memory card! Oh yes I was downloading images using a card reader. I raced back inside, clicked on ‘eject memory card’ and … error, card is in use! So I just yanked out the card and hoped for the best.
With camera and card re-united I was able capture this wonderful Salzkammergut sunset.
