Sandfly Creek Sunset

Trudged down to my little secret spot this evening (its not really very secret - you probably know where it is!) hoping to get a good sunset.  The sky looked very clear but then a few clouds came in and there was a nice glow whilst the sun was still above the horizon but it unfortunately got fairly dull at my favourite sunset time 10 minutes or so after the sun disappears.

This is a 3 shot HDR - basically 3 exposures of the same scene merged together to capture all the varying brightness of the scene.  Without this the mangroves would be completely silhouetted (black).  This is essentially what our eyes do when surveying a scene anyway - for instance they will adjust when looking at a dark part or bright part of a scene.
