The minimalist composition of this shot makes this amazing sky stand out even more. Well done, Stephen.

Wow - this is amazing sky and I am glad you were there to capture this! Often people don't realize how much color there is on clouds at sunset and this is a perfect example! Great composition - it allows my eyes to just wander looking at all of the details and color! Great work Stephen!

Beautiful. That wide angle sky with mountains low on the horizon is striking, not to mention the incredible view of this land and river.

Big, big sky full of big colours. It's a cracking sunset picture, I'd just like to see a touch more shadow detail to give the foreground a little more interest.

Simply a magnificent shot, Stephen! You did everything perfectly with this one, from the composition right through the execution... including any pp that may have been involved. Blue Ribbon work, for sure! Those dappled skies give the blues above a chance to play with the color in the clouds... always additive. Thanks for sharing this beauty with us!!

Gorgeous shot Stephen....the clouds are great, and to have them over the background of that marshland with the water, just sets it off perfectly!!! Great catch!!
