Sunset from Winyards Nick

By g0wex  
I went up to Winyards Nick as I've not really shot from this location before and certainly not at sunset.
Winyards Nick lies approx 1/2 way between Higger and Over Owler Tor and only consists of a small selection of gritstone but has a tremendous view down over the Hope Valley. It doesn't get photographed much (if at all) so it was nice to be able to have some nice light to try and do it justice.
When I first arrived here there was quite a bit of cloud around so conditions looked fairly dull, the clouds were moving quite quickly though and it was clear around the horizon so I knew it would change when the sun dropped lower. This gave me plenty of time to search out the best compositions so I would be ready when the sun finally returned.
The change in the landscape when the sun came back was stunning with some lovely bursts of rich warm colour from the golden hour light.

another very fine composition, the striking colours and lighting bring the whole image together with layers and depth! Excellent!
