The end of the day
From the bottom of the garden of my first rental cottage on the Isle of Skye. The day had been quite wet (yes, it does rain in Scotland occasionally) and towards the middle of the evening the skies cleared and it was filled with these fabulous colours.

I stayed twice in this cottage. It was only just across the bridge from the mainland and so gave me the options of going either back onto the mainland or further on into the heart of Skye. The latter was a fair old drive as it's a big island. Shame really as the cottage was fabulous.

Smashing sunset lots of reds and just a hint of blue which looks stronger in the reflections, like it a lot, well seen and taken

What a beautiful sunset picture and thank goodness we have the larger image size now to see it at it's best. Just for the hell of it I rotated the image 90 degrees, turned my 27" screen on it's end and wound the picture up to fit - absolutely stunning but it did suggest one small tweak - to lighten up the boat a tad to lift it out of the background a bit more. Luv it, just luv it!

Now I guess if you've posted this here you must have a belter for the reflections challenge
A gorgeous sunset, subtle pastel orange that fades to just a hint of blue in the top left, reflected beautifully in the calm sea, luv it.
A good point from Keith about lightening the boat a bit, but still like it loads.

Thanks, guys, for the comment. I had lightened the boat using the Adjustment brush in Lightroom - obviously not enough, though.

George: It's not eligible for the Challenge was it was not taken during the period of the Challenge; it dates from May 2011. I've got nothing suitable yet!

Super colours and reflection in this one Alan, What a wonderful view to have from your holiday cottage. It was well worth cloning out all the seaweed to show this reflection at its very best.

A gorgeous sunset Alan, the sky shows some superb colours in it. There are also some lovely reflections showing in the stillness of the water. Well taken & edited.
