Snow is coming!
Something from the achieves. This is New Year's Eve 2009 and is looking south from Holy Island to Bamburgh Castle. Already snow was falling out to sea and it quickly moved on to the land and for a while I thought I was not going to be able to get back to my rental cottage at Warkworth. All the main roads became blocked but I eventually found country lanes with fresh snow to drive on.

Very dynamic sky like the contrast of the three main elements of the image sky, clouds and water all works very well together.
But on a lighter side it looks a bit like a scene from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"
That aside It a very commendable shot and I like it a lot

What a contrast between the upper and lower clouds, the upper could be heralding a fine sunset whilst the lower a storm of Biblical Magnitude
A cracking shot indeed, luv it. Was it hand held?
Just one nit pick, is that adult bunny just up and to the right of the jagged rock?

Now thats what I call dramatic. The colours in the sky are fantastic & real stormy looking, with the bright orange sky adding a slight reflection on the water. Well taken.

There is a great range of colours in this Sky, very dramatic, but must have been difficult getting back to the cottage.

An interesting sky but I think maybe insufficient to stand alone. I do feel some other item perhaps in the water to grab the viewers' attention would improve it. The sky should be kept in a file of different skies to be brought out from time to time to improve other pictures which just need something like this to make it.
