The very last moments of the glaring sphere immersing into the sea. One of those wonderful sunsets from Wied iz-Zurrieq, Malta. The golden sky remain in this cast for at least three quarters of an hour...it's a whole spectacle of Nature in this place!

PP work: enhanced color tones and sharpened while adapting back light filter (Photoscape)

Bom dia francis, meu vizinho de hoje,
There are times when living on an island is a privilege. This is what you shoot one of these. The sun gilded the sky diving into the net mass of the sea. It is superb.
Worth the slight inclination of the horizon.

Hi Francis.

I love the flattened perspective from the zoom. Good sharpness & graphism with fantastic warm colours of yellow & orange, & I also like the glowing halo from the backlit cloud. Tfs!

Lovely sunset! Nicely captured with good pov and dof with nice details. Love the colors of the sky and the clouds. Very well done, tfs.

Hello Francis,
