A lovely sunset we had here yesterday as me and Edwin watched the setting sun dip over the horizon ... a whisp of fine clouds to make the setting all the more beautiful.

The great ball of fire captured here a few seconds before it "plunged" into the sea regaling us with this enchanting spectacle ... lovely rich hues over the horizon. What caught my attention later viewing the shot on my PC is that solitary fine whisp of cloud in the top of the frame ... well it looks like a cloud anyway! It certainly adds some interest to the overall shot. Thought it was worth posting for you to enjoy ...

Larger should look better, thanks for viewing.

Joe

Looks like a vapour trail (or a comet!). Anyway, I agree, it just makes the image.

A marvellous effect. Are you sure the white isn't a UFO? -Brian.
