Hard or Easy?

Here's a nice picture, full of action. 

Aha, I hear you say, its just a picture of a lane that has been attacked by Photoshop using the motion blur tool.

But not so! This was taken the hard way by cycling down this hill one handed while firing the camera (with a suitably slow shutter speed) with the other hand. I suppose I must add that this was on the way home from the pub one lunchtime.

And now - doing it the easy way. Glancing out of our west facing office window, I spotted that a brief sunset was due today. We have suffered under a blanket of thick cloud and freezing temperatures, but the sun appeared for a couple of minutes at the end of the day. Out with the tele lens, open the window and get a picture. No effort required, and certainly no bike involved...
