This was one of those rare days in which the light is something like "divine"...
A stormy afternoon right at its end the sun starts to break trough, time to pack up things and go down to the bay and wait for the sun starting to set.
This scene must have happen 10 or 15 minutes before the sun started to pass down the line of horizon.
There were light showers and streaks of light coming from almost everywhere behind the clouds... this was one of many I've recorded that end of the day, in which I particularly like the top of the clouds...
Hope you enjoy it!

You're right, this is a wonderful light. You managed to catch this beautiful light in a perfect way.

Este céu é excelente. Realmente gosto da composição e do contraste de luz e cores com o 1º plano escuro.

the light's exceptional and the color's superb but in my opinion it's rather ominous than divine:)
Wonderful capture, my compliments.

You were at the right moment to immortalize the sun before it disappeared completely and the atmosphere created by the sunset colour tones and dark clouds is working well. The cross is balancing well the image...
Have a nice day

Divine indeed! The sunset is just marvelous, definitely a sight to behold. Love the glowing outline of the clouds as well as the sun's circle hiding beneath the grey tones. The Cross is a strong subject in here, completes the "divinity" of the image. Great shot! Great compo!
