Artist's description:

There was a blue wintersky with a red sun which had just dropped off the end of the world. I thought nothing of it until a few wispy clouds appeared on the horizon; just maybe?
I ran upstairs to get my trusty camera and sat watching the afterglow developing, nothing much at first but I have been deceived like this before! Within 5 minutes yellow, then orange and finally a beautiful curtain drew itself across the western sky. And what's more it happened right outside my front door! I fired off 3 shots and did a bit of Monet motion blurring for practice. The Monet blurs were not really anything to write home about, but I really liked the shot you see here. What I like most about it is the silhouetted horizon, which rises in the right hand side of the photograph depicting the old farm buildings. This is a massive contrast to the sky which is just like a heavenly furnace. Somehow, I liked the pylon in there too, reaching up into the flames. I thought about doctoring it out but for me it links old, the new and the natural; it just works!

So there we are, my short story about my doorstep sunset. I hope you all enjoy the photograph and maybe it will take you on a mental tingling journey within the warmth of the fiery clouds.

As always, I only do a print run of 10. All signed with a coded certificate of authenticity. When they sold out, that's it for this print. So grab yourself a piece of Yorkshire landscape artwork and immerse yourself.

Kindest regards
Mark Lupton
