Definately couldn't get bored of shots like this. Perfectly exposed, I love the orange contrasting with the darker colour of the clouds. Lovely blur on the water too.

Exceptional quality throughout, Helen. I echo Nic Duncan's comment above - what do you do with your extraordinary images? Surely there's serious publishing potential here.

One question I wanted to ask, Helen : when you say you use combined ND grads, is that one on top of the other or one inverse? Presumably the former to compensate for the significant contrast in exposure?
