I was just changing to head out to a New Years Eve party. Looking out of my bedroom window I saw a wonderful sunset over towards Hale and Altrincham. I grabbed my camera but I obviously didn’t get chance to set up my tripod or monopod. Its not the best photograph but it was a lovely sunset to end the year. Today was very windy, stormy and raining for the most of the day. I am looking forward to 2007 and hopefully will develop my photography and website throughout the next year. Enjoy your evening and have a happy new year.
Manchester Sunset from outside Student Village
Whilst waiting for a lift for back to Altrincham I saw another interesting sunset in the background, it feels very strange to see the sun going down in the late afternoon rather than late evening but it makes for very interesting skies. I live in the tall block of flats to the right above Scu2Bar. The view behind me as I take this photograph looks toward the BBC buildings and Oxford Road and to my left is a very large Manchester Metropolitan University building.
Construction of Manchester’s Piccadilly Plaza
Late this afternoon I was getting a train from Piccadilly Station in Manchester over to Wilmslow, I was a little early and the light was very strong due to the time of day so I thought I would get a quick snap from the main entrance of station. The construction work is of a new shopping centre / offices, which I believe is called Piccadilly Plaza but I’m not 100% sure of that. The sunset behind the buildings looked a lot better in reality but I did my best to capture the light without throwing the buildings and cranes into to much shadow.
Sunset over Dublin Port, Ireland
We got on the ferry back to Holyhead about an hour early. Due to the time of day I took a little walk up on the top deck. It was cold and I was very tired having travelled across Ireland but the sunset was spectacular, the location might not have been the best, Dublin Port isn’t the most picturesque part of Dublin by a long way but the sunset was something quite magical and a fitting way to end my trip to Ireland.
