And then there......

By rhiw_com  
First decent bit of light in ages. Took this tonight. Bardsey Island is the most westerly part of north Wales, and is separated from the mainland by two miles of one of the most treacherous bits of water in the whole of the British Isles.

F22, 1/10 sec, Lens @ 45 mm, ISO 100, ND grad filter, 4:12pm.

Please view...Large...if you can.

Added 6-1-06
I cloned out a pole at the extreme right, and adjusted, levels, curves, and contrast. There was no dust to remove, as I cleaned the sensor the other day. The file itself is all original.

Hope you like it, and many thanks for all your clicks and comments on my last upload.

Regards to you all, and hope you have a great weekend, Tony

Hi Terry (teapot) This was the second good sunset I've seen since before Christmas, the other was Thursday night. The mornings have all been poor for weeks. Sad
