slightly out of focus

so we took a hike up to salisbury crags for one last view of the city ... what we did not anticipate was the drastic change in sunset times when you are so far from the equator ... when we first got here the sun would not set until 10:30 pm we got to the crags around 9:30pm and had almost missed dusk ... i did not bring a tripod ... as we hiked up some of us separated and all i could hear as i climbed the steep hill was my own breath and the wind the city lights took on an eerie silence ... and though i wish i had a tripod i feel these images might work better to capture the strange silent mood of sitting above the city on a quiet and chilly sunday night
