Time for a bit of colour; well I had to try and do justice to this wonderful heather. It was all over this side of St Mary’s in the Scilly Isles.

Taken towards the twin humped Island of Samson, this was one of the few sunsets with a bit of colour from my trip last week

I pushed the HDR a tad, just to bring out the best of the detail in the grass – hope I haven’t gone too far?!

Many thanks to everyone who commented and voted on my previous image, and to Pete for the HC – much appreciated!

Gorgeous light, Paul.
The catchlight on the waves in the middle distance is just lovely.
Purple and green just work so well together, don't they?
And unusual for you not to be on the shoreline dowsed in spray!
All the best,
Bill

ps I'm considering E2. Worth it?

If you work out what it cost's weekly, I'd say so Bill.

Cheers folks

Like the details and colours in this Paul good light too- well captured and processed. Looks like you had a bit better weather for you shot then I did for mine.

Wonderful again Paul. Love the light and colours in this, the heather looks great. The only area where I'd say you've possibly pushed the tone mapping is on the strip of green down the left hand edge but it certainly doesn't detract from the image.

I particularly like the light on the ocean, and the way the pinks in the heather covered landscape are echoed in the sky
