Who can resist an African sunset? Not this guy! I moved around a bit and took several.
Sunsets with a telephoto lens are fantastic for zooming in and picking out details in a landscape as well as filling the sensor with those great sunset colours.

My wife and I just returned from a trip to the Kruger National Park and over the next few days I will be posting some of the photographs I took while there. I took along my D850 as well as a 24-120mm and a 70-300mm, however most of these pics were taken with the 70-300mm. I mainly used aperture priority with f8 most (but not all) of the time & auto iso between 64 and 4000 with a minimum shutter speed of 1/500th of a second. I just adjusted as needed when the light started to fade in the evenings. This setup made for easy and quick shooting in fast changing scenes and I think the results are sufficiently good to make me very happy.
I highly recommend the Kruger National Park in South Africa not only for it's great facilities and service, but also for the abundance of game in a pristine natural African landscape.
Here then are the first five from day one:

Visited a small town called Mölle today, a harbour town that provides plenty of photographic opportunities. On previous visits I took the more conventional tourist pics of the harbour and surrounds but this time I was a little more interested in details, colour, texture, etc.
Took my D850 with the awesome 50mm f1.8 G "nifty fifty" attached. I also had a polarizing filter screwed on the front to get rid of reflections and boost colour, especially in the sky.
I'll split the pics over a couple of posts.
