Morning Folks,

Taken last night, in what was an awesome sunset.... but just a bit too bright for me to control.
This attempt will have to do for now.
Thanks for looking.

Must be time for a full English??

I love the title! Definite FG interest here! I think the Light house is a bit wonky though and it distracts from a dramatic picture

So much to look at in the pic. The blob, the lighthouse (nice how you got the sun to set directly behind it - well done) and the detail of what I think my be a plane's jetstream? Looks great large!

Awesome shot, there is so much of interest to look at. My fave aspect....the shafts of sun light emerging from behind the lighthouse. 10/10

The light rays are great as is the composition.
Even though the lighthouse might be skewed naturally, I think the shot would benefit from straightening, although I'm not sure how easy that would be as your horizon looks dead straight.
Whatever it gets my vote.

I'm pleased somone answered the question for me.

Inspired to catch the sun behind the lighthouse making it look, I agree, like a firework exploding.

Lovely stuff. Can't make my mind up about the plane - whether it adds or distracts, but easily sorted either way. The rays behind the LH are lovely.
