great range of colours.

Thanks for your comments, Steandeb. I looked through some of your sunsets. They're all great, but I especially like your Illuminated Man series. Hard to know which is my favourite!

Fantastic colours! The folden suncolour on the foreground mixed with the dark colour of the clouds on the background, really nice

Thank you Alex. The colour contrast in that sunset was amazing, with the dark blue rainclouds on one side and the red and gold of the sunset on the other. There were so many pictures I would like to have taken, but it was all from a car, and those things go way too fast for photography!

Strong brilliant colours, very nice Phoenix51200.

Love the colour contrasts the fence and the machines against the blues of the sky. Not the usual sunset where the colour change is in the sky and I think that is what grabs my eye. well done

Thank you very much. This is one of my favourite pictures for the same reasons. I was lucky to catch this as we were driving past. At the same time I took a picture in the opposite direction, of the actual sunset, but I like this one better by far.

That's a beautiful picture. I love lighting like that, where the sunlight picks out the foreground against a dark background.

I agree, this was one spectacular sunset. A few minutes later it was pouring! But at this instant... it was just "picture-perfect." This is still one of my favourites.

Well done. This could be a painting.

The sun illuminating objects when a storm is approaching makes such an alluring composition for a photographer and you captured it beautifully!!

Thaks Jessica G. (Aka Phoenix, right?)

Hi draken, thanks for the compliments! This is one of my favourite photos, even though this version needs quite a bit of editing.

Cheers Jessica (who used to be Phoenix.)

Wow. This a special picture Jessica.

beautiful picture!

Thanks Conrad, HS and agios! Amazing what sunset lighting can do to an old junkyard - I've never seen it like this since.
