I'm not sure of this one at all, I don't know if it's just too ordinary.

Taken at Gairloch along the Melvaig coast, coming back from a walk on the beach with the dogs, I loved the colours of the sunset, this was after a really rainy day.

Thanks for looking.

The sky is certainly not ordinary! I'd like to see a little more of it and a little less of the foreground, though.

I'll echo Julian's comment about the sky being far from ordinary. I think that I would try to lighten the marram grass (esp on the LHS)?
Beautiful picture of a beauiful place Tracy.

As said, far from ordinary. I like the foreground as the path is a lead in to that cracking sky. Strangely on this laptop, if you bob up and down(!) the sky darkens and the grass lightens, and vice versa. I know! but it is wednesday!!
