This is a shot from Coxtor that I took back in March. I had high hopes that there would be a good sunset, but as you can see, the clouds began to gather, and the sunset never materialised.
I have been unable to be on here much in the last few days, and will start catching up with your photos later this eveningSmile

Glad to see the tree in shot MikeWink, still managed to capture a fascinating sky with super colour and the mist all making for a splendid shot.

I would still consider it to be a sunset, Mike, though not with dynamic colours, but its the subtlety of the colours that I find attractive.

Despite the disappointing sunset, you still have an excellent moorland landscape.
