I guess it's been another long absence for me from TE... nice to see everyone still posting away around here!
I took this sunset shot the other night (alongside my father, who I imagine will post his own shots of it sooner or later) from Hull, Massaschusetts, a small town on a peninsula which juts into Boston Harbor. The distant skyline you see at left is Boston itself. The sunset snuck up on us; even as the sun was at the horizon it didn't look like it was going to turn into much. Luckily, though, we waited it out and got rewarded.

Great to see you post, and what a post, you bring the apocalypse! A gift the whole family can enjoy :)
This is a very beautiful scene, and you were rewarded handsomely for your patience, there is a dark and somewhat malevolent feel to this, but it does not in any way take away from the beauty. The dark greys and red orange tones make me think of peering into dantes inferno, but present up above. A beautiful moment and the silhouette of the city makes this dismay look incredibly huge. Beautiful post, thanks for sharing.

Welcome back! While sunsets are not exactly rare on TE, this is an exceptional example, and well worth posting. I'm not sure if that's a figure silhouetted in the foreground, but I hope it is!

Hello Andrew - Glad to see you snatch some time from you busy life to post here again. The rich colours and details of the sunset are quite dramatic and well punctuated by the couple silhouetted at the water's edge.

Welcome back... again! What a fantastic colourful sky - worth the wait as you say. The whole things puts me in mind of the paintings by Turner. I was in the National Portrait gallery in London a while back and his images adorned the walls and the sky in this would be something he would be proud of I think.
Thanks - hopefully see you on her again soon!

It's amazing that a little patience at just the right time can reap amazing rewards - and you have done just that here. What nicer way to spend half an hour or so watching the setting sun and then go home rejoicing in the fact that you've captured a scene like this in your camera!
This photograph is truly stunning and the light and colours in the sky are out of this World. You have composed the view perfectly with the city on the skyline at the left and nicely balanced by the romantic couple at the water's edge. Perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness too.

I didn't see you sneak in...great to have you back around! There's no shortage of sunset pics, but when they're done as good as this, never a problem seeing more. :) This one has a tropical look and feel about it, but good you didn't have to travel that far to obtain the result, yeah? :)
Your patience and timing certainly paid out, the deep colors are gorgeous and help set a wonderful tone over the scene. Time to fade off into the evening. Have a good one. Take it easy.

Just sit there and relax, what a great way to spend the evening!
That is Lovers' sunset! Love it all.... the ripples of the tide, amazing colours and the grand scale of the whole image when those two silhouetted figs really added a dimension to the pic.. and above all there is a nice evening feeling in this image, lots of detail and texture, and very romantic with a beautiful story to it. A very nice effect indeed. Well done and tfs.
