About half an hour after the sun had set the sky was an amazing colour from the South thru the West to the North-West... At the same time we saw a beautiful glow in the water. This shot was taken along the shore in the SWW direction.
The sun's "landing spot" is toward the right edge of this shot.
The fir-trees are on Powers Island in Sambro Harbour.
In the open water to the left edge the objects on the water are floats for lobstertraps. The entire harbour is dotted with same.
I used a ledge as an improvised tripod.

Sometimes we get lucky on these post-sunset photos, and you seem to have been lucky!
You have done well to capture the luscious orange-reds in the sky in this photo, as well as the same color reflected in the water!
That doesn't always happen especially when the trees are shielding the sun from the water!!
Nice composition, wonderful balance, and overall a GREAT shot!!
