Awesome sunset colours. Very beautiful and dramatic. Nice contrast with good silhouettes. Very lovely, well done.

For the lack of better words to describe the beauty and magnificence of a fiery sunset, I quote you the following:
FIRE IN THE SKY
Like fire in the sky it is
When the sun sets in the night
Red and yellow engulf the world
In a vivid and glorious sight
Itís seems so unexplainable
How the sky lights up this way
I canít think of a more perfect
Way to end the day
Sometimes purple adds itself
To the colours up above
A fever in the sky it seems
Or God showing His thoughtful love
Whatever is the reason?
We enjoy the sights so much
When the sun drops from the sky
And leaves its brilliant touch!
A poem by Marilyn Lott.
Well done with this lovely composition showing the reflective river and the silhouetted strip of shore vegetation in the bottom 1/3 area on the horizontal plane, and 2 different types of clouds each filling up a separate 1/3 area in the sky. The colours are stunning and well saturated, the details are fine, and the exposure levels captured excellent contrasts and lighting within the scenario.
Good work and TFS.
Stunning sunset colours!
I like so much the composition made with this river and the surrounding trees.
You really took good advantage of the impressive fire tones at the sky and its clouds formations.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
A delightful spread of color, Nick!
