Today was 41 degrees that's 105 farenheit, kind of over summer now!! So took the dog for it's nightly walk as we normally do, to the beach, except this time I didn't head straight for the dog beach but to the civilian beach, and thankfully I did. About 2 mins after we got there, this young boy swam out to the pontoon with a soccer ball - I thought 'you little beauty' perfect timing for me to catch a game and this most amazing sunset at the same time, what a night!

I'm guessing a few will think it's a shoehorn entry but so many have done well lately with shoehorns I'm willing to take the risk.

Would of loved something like this for the orange challenge the sky was MAGNIFICENT!

37 votes 6.55 maybe it is a shoehorn.

Thanks for the nice votes - one of my least edited photo's to win a ribbon, original is not much different!

Beautiful sky. That lower portion has a tension in it that is not normally part of a sunset. Congrats on the blue.

quite like this one,it has nice shape and form, the figure on the far right seems to be out of the composition.really I think its a distraction, the interplay of the other
two are the story its the old story 2s company 3is a croud tends to apply, Although an odd numbers make better compositions.
I like this as a a long thin photo crop out the clouds.
I was called all sorts of names including religious bigot by a member who didn't like my term "presbyterian" in fact you have 2 pictures for the price of one! The clouds, and 2ndly the boys.
If you are wondering why well prsbyterian is steeped in scotland and we know sots love a bargain!!! hope you are not offended. I was almost black balled from the site by Hahn for that .
