Sunset on the Marina

By ColleenA
Good morning ....
Thank you for your votes and comments on my marina reflections and a special thanks to Billy (Williamsloan), Patty (Pentaxpatty)Kathryn (Kathrynlouise) and Maureen (HarrietH) for their User awards, much appreciated
Last night we had the most magnificent sunset and I nearly missed it. Had to run down to the marina with my camera...even forgot my tripod. just got there as the sun had set...
This is not processed...the colours are real...there must have been a dozen residents from our complex out on the sea wall with me capturing the sunset.
Have a nice day...we have a public holiday here so will catch up with you all later.

Beautiful cloud patterns and sunset colours, Colleen: so well worth the run down to the marina to capture the scene.
Lovely repetition of the sky colours in the water, and strong silhouettes.

Colleen, burnt fire sky, what more could you ask for in this shot. Super balance of darkness surrounding that fire of reflection works so marks from me.

You're fortunate to be close to the marina as a focal point for your sunset.
We're often at home when there is a glorious sky but no real composition to be gained.
I hope you'll have such wonderful views in Australia.
Nice work Colleen.

The apartments are all facing the marina so we get wonderful views, but the composition is better once one is standing on the edge of the marina rather than on the 2nd floor with the gardens in front

A spectacular sunset that was not to be missed, the sky colour is stunning. It makes a change to see a natural sunset and not one that is over cooked at gas mark seven!WinkGrin
