I wanted to get something like this for awhile now, simple and with vibrant colours.
A few failed attempts later because of the weather, finally I managed to get the sky as I wanted it, well, almost. The idea was to get the orange afterglow of a sunset with a completely clear sky but hey, this is Scotland, clear skies are rear.
Anyway, I'm quite pleased with the way this one finally turned out and pleased with the A2 print also.

f5.6 - s/s 250sec - iso 100

I like the simplicity here. Very abstract looking. Does the magenta cast bug you in any way?

Incredible colors. I think it's perfect.

Beautiful. I could see a series of prints like this on my wall.

No, not at all.
I know that it does bug a lot of people but at the end of the day, there was magenta colour in the sky anyway.

Agreed. It doesn't bug me either. Just thought I'd ask. :)

That would make a great wall hanger in a room with any of those colors. Just looks like it should be on a wall somewhere.

Interesting - it plays with your eyes. it looks as the horizon is not straight - but when you check it is perfectly straight

Really like this. If it were in landscape orientation it would be my new desktop!

Is that what we saw off the coast when we shot together Dimitri?
