Couldn't resist popping over to Eilean Donan Castle for sunset while we in Skye last week. Unfortunately, there were very few clouds so not the sunset I have hoped for, but just had to take a few shots anyway - as you do Smile

Just a nice enough scattering of clouds to make the difference! Lovely low-light capture and so beuaitully composed.

Slightly different from you Sue and I like it a lot. Would maybe be tempted to balance the image top to bottom by tightening the crop above the clouds and placing the horizon dead centre.

Gorgeous peaceful scene Sue. I love the way the brightness of the Sun just about to go down into darkness, draws the Eye to it, and the Castle still with detail and not just a Black outline. Smashing!
