Very nice. We were beginning to see the light moving round here on Sunday, but decided to rush round to Castle Stalker for sunset instead

I'm jealous, this is a very beautiful image, well done matey. Did you use a neutral grad filter?

Many thanks for the award Mari, made my evening. The light appeared very quickly, from drab brown to this fiery display in about a minute, had me scrambling around trying to get a composition.

Yes Edwin. I used a 3stop stop ND grad along with a 3 stop ND filter to lengthen the exposure.
