The Devil is in the details

By philhemsley      
“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary“

Aaron Rose

A late evening view from the cliffs above Mutton Cove, looking across to the historic ex Royal Navy’s – Royal William Victualling Yard and the Devil’s Point. The transient golden light lasted about 20 seconds.

The island past the breakwater, at the end of Jennycliff Bay is the Great Mew Stone.

The luxury yachts are moored on the entrance to Stonehouse Creek.

(Plymouth Sound, South Devon, England)

A great image! Magic light.
Try cropping the lower part, so you end up with a long 3:1 'cinemascope' image.
I think it will also look fantastic.
