This was last Saturday's sunset, with this cloud mass passing over Shropshire......the sun had dropped below the horizon, & was lighting
up the underside of the clouds in this blast of color..........10 minutes later & it had faded !!.......I'd timed it just right, involving a short
drive to get to my favourite vantage point..........one of life's little 'ups' !!!!!

Many thanks for the response to 'Coniston Twilight', glad you liked it !!......special thanks to Myra for her valued UA !!.Smile

The tree sets the wonderful sky off beautifully. I caught the same sunset ( live in N Shropshire) but didn't get such an interesting foreground.

Beautiful sunset to provide the back light to the silhouette... however I might be tempted to crop the top to below the large patch of blue sky and give it more of a panoramic feel. Smile
