Racing the earth's rotation

Ha ha, that was fun! On my way home from work, I saw the sun round and amber over the fields next to Glover Road, just gorgeous, and I knew I had to capture a shot of that sunset with a 300mm telephoto lens. As I was pulling into the garage, the sun was already sinking behind the neighbouring hills of Surrey; as I grabbed my camera and lens and dashed out to the balcony, there were less than 90 seconds left to pick a composition and focus, before the sun disappeared out of sight. After a tiring Monday catching up on marking and lecture preparation, that was a fun diversion!
