Mother nature puts on one heck of a show

An Arctic sunset made abstract, blurring parts of the cloud layer and sea by panning the camera on a tripod with a slow exposure (0.6s)

Some of the most incredible sunsets we have seen have been in the Arctic.

On a clear night, when looking out across the dark, calm seas you can see the curvature of the earth on the horizon whilst mother nature puts on one heck of a show. Vivid reds, yellows and oranges are mingled together across a cloudless and still sky. Standing on the bridge of the ship you can almost convince yourself you are the only one witnessing this. It reminded me of a Rothko painting – so by panning the camera right to left whilst taking the shot I decide to create my own sky art. I hope you like it.
