This image was taken at Portnaluchaig not far from the small Golf Course there (it's Scotland after all). Portnaluchaig is very close to both Mallaig and Arisaig, being on the coastal road between the two places. I found it by accident and am really impressed with the loaction, it's one I'll be returning to.
Back to the image, what you're seeing here is a true record of what happened. It's not boosted in Photoshop, in fact, I've toned it down a little as the RAW image seemed too red for once. The sunset over the Isle of Eigg and as it dipped below the island everything went this blood red colour. The light was streaming between Eigg and Rum (as you can see) and the clouds went a really dark purple/red colour that I've never seen before.
I hope you like it.
