Kogelbay Sunset by hougaard Kogelbay Sunset by hougaard
Please view the image on my website against a dark background - [link]

I've reprocessed all my old favorites and I'll be updating them over the coming weeks. I remember every detail of this sunset like it was yesterday and until now (3.5 years later) I have not seen better light at Kogelbay.
I would give a leg to shoot this again with a full frame camera system and Lee filters!

Either way, it is still one of my all time favorites.

Shot on 30 May 2008 at Kogelbay, South Africa

Canon 40D
Sigma 10-20mm
Cokin 2 stop grad
0.3s
f/11
ISO100

Hi Hougaard, can I ask you one thing: I'm looking to buy the Sigma 10-20mm since I've been doing more and more landscape photography and it's a good starting lens I think.
But what Sigma did you use when you started? The 4.0-5.6 or the 3.5?
Thanks and again, great work :)
