A view from Ipi Bay in Ende, South Central Flores, East Nusa Tenggrara Province; one of the many bays around this remote island. This shot was taken just before sunset when the sun got lower, observing the activity in the sky was like being part of a wakeful dream for me.
Clouds grow and always changing fast and disappearing and then reappearing in visible forms of various formations and tones through the late afternoon.
So, this is nature's act of 'now you see it & now you dont' ....

this is a brilliant photo and I like very much the description in your note too. In your broad skyscape we really get the impression that an immense painting is evolving before our eyes, brush strokes added, colours shifting, focal patterns being transported all the time. You managed the magnificent but challenging light of this hour in an excellent way. The chromatic palette you've captured is so rewarding. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

superb drama in this sunset on the water. The vivid and saturated colours are handled brilliantly to provide a great visual impact. The reflection of the sky in the water and the silhouettes of the hills and the boats are superb.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend.

un tramonto spettacolare, il cielo infuocato si ripercuote sull'acqua creando colori e sfumature fantastiche.
kato (11630) 2014-05-18 0:23
You're capturing well this scape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the bay dyed to setting sun, the peninsula in the distance with the silhouette and clouds formation changing in the sky. And, some boats in bay draw out a good impact.
siudzi (34141) 2014-05-18 1:20
Wow! What an outstanding scene you have photographed! The intensive colors of the sky were perfectly saturated to achieve this wonderful visual effect. Simply love it! A perfect execution. Bravo!

Noel_Byrne (32084) 2014-05-18 10:10
There is no artist among men that can rival the amazing views that nature gives us, and how lucky we are that you were there with camera to capture this spectacle. Beautiful deep reds and orange tones, a really inspiring sight. I love how you composed this to include the vessels in the water, it makes the sky above seem do much larger and inspiring. Thanks for sharing this beauty.
All the best

A spectacular sunset with beautiful fiery colours. The foreground is clean and simple and adds greatly to the majesty of the sky.
siolaw (38292) 2014-05-18 21:38
A classic sunset with glorious copper tones, the compo, with low horizon and island silhouettes gives the right space to this sky

Kielia (24077) 2014-05-19 5:28
this photo is very representative of your style that I have already enjoyed so many times: dramatic scenery, rich colours and fine detail. The sky is fabulous with great colours and detail. The reflection in the water makes it look like it is on fire. Interesting foreground boats too. My compliments!

The silhouette of hills and boats under a dramatic sky looks like a stage set. I love that the frame is full of colourful sky. This is a painterly image.
mirosu (16273) 2014-05-20 1:45
Superb sunset photo with terrific colors, excellent clarity and marvellous light reflections. The sky is fabulous and the arrangement with the boats on calm water and the dark hills in background is perfect.
Very well done.
rogerl (1616) 2014-05-20 6:11
Abmdsudi, what amazing colors. In addition to that, the clouds themselves are quite lovely. The whole feel of the scene, with the empty boats and the dark mountains, is very peaceful and tranquil. Beautiful shot. Thanks.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-05-20 6:40
what a miracle this sunset is! It is wonderful way to end up the day indeed. I love the colors of the sky and the way they reflect on the water as well. Some clouds make it more interesting as well as couple of the boats. Beautiful view and executed masterly. Superb light management and clarity.
Thanks for sharing and all the best
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-05-20 6:48
Wow! The colors are enough to wake me up in the morning, don't need the coffee and they are beautiful! I also like the golden reflections of the colors on the water. The fishing boats provided little breaks. Well done, tfs.
adramad (46926) 2014-05-20 12:35
Stunning beauty of this sunset, the sky impresses with these red tones, alternating with blue and grayish, the reflections transmitted to the surface of the sea is ideal to complement the backlight of the coastline, is another beauty to add a set really spectacular.
Very nice colorful tones very effective.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
Splendid image. My compliments.
Have a nice day.

fotka (4515) 2014-05-23 4:57
Wow, this is very beautiful sunset. The colorful clouds made nice diagonal formation and golden glare on the water. The silhouetted mountains and boats completed this wonderful picture.
Congratulations, and have a nice weekend,
mkamionka (38329) 2014-05-23 8:24
no words to give it a justice. The sky is spectacular with a great contrast of cold and warm areas. It seems to be really on fire! The effect is stunning! Great that you included some silhouettes of boats and a shape of the coast as well.
Breathtaking! A real master piece!
jemaflor (99027) 2014-05-25 23:18
So lovely sky with these warm tones perfectly captured, brightness and reflections on the sea are wonderful, good details with these boats, tfs.
josepmarin (58359) 2014-05-27 3:31
a spectacular sunset-capture here!
You've caught skilfully the warm orange tones on the clouds, which seem to burn, in a good graphical contrast about the landscape silhouettes, the boats and the silver sea.
Your composition is a fantastic chromatic symphony, elegantly and impeccably executed.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-05-28 8:46
I almost miss this impresivve capture where the clouds and the sky reflecting in the sea are quite eye catching with the magnificent colors
What I like the more is your signature is this captures,silhouettes of the tini boats
Very well done, TFS
Angshu (56760) 2014-05-30 1:24
The sunset hues especially on the clouds create a brilliant impression and the combination of the red clouds and the silhouettes of the boats and cliffs is a sureshot winning formula. Fine work!
mcmtanyel (24567) 2014-06-02 18:45
The sunset colors are lovely and the silhouettes of the distant mountains and boats on the ocean add charming shapes.
