The end of the day

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Thank you for all the votes and comments and a special thank you to Helenlinda and Cheesy for their UA's, much appreciated. I will turn some of those reflections into true abstarcts as suggested by some of you.
Last night we had another great sunset. I noticed the funny clouds about an hour before sunset, so this time I was prepared and went down to the marina with my tripod, wide angle lens and my Lee ND grad filters. The sky kept changing and I got so many different versions of the sunset over 20 minutes so thought I would share them all in one go so you can see what I saw.
V1 was after the sunset, the sky was quite pink
V2 sun peeping over the roof of The Raddison hotel...puffy clouds
V3 sunset
V4 deeper colours

Isn't it fascinating to watch sunsets?
Four lovely images here Colleen and like the majority I think V2 is especially appealing
because of it's more unique colours.
V1 is of course spectacular with those wonderful orangey/pinks and blues.
