Oh Keith! as the dark creeps in, this is brilliantly composed; just making a note of your camera settings, since I have been practising sunset shots without success. the metal ring on the beach just adds that little bit extra.

A lovely rich sunset with warm colours in f/g and lovely reflections on the water.
Portrait format works well her Keith.
Our sunsets aren't till much later in evening.

I know exactly where you were standing,I was there two week's ago when I took my Mum for a ride in the car,and I also love to cycle along the side of Menai Strait's as I only live about 20 miles away.
But I have never been there during a sunset,and your sunset image makes me want to go there in the evening as it look's so Beautiful.
Were you there on holiday?SmileSmileSmile
