I interrupt my French series for a short burst of local photos.
Tonight was one of those magnificent sunsets - the sort that sends you running from the dinner table, leaving your glass of wine to grab your camera. I hope you enjoy the result - it stretched right back over the house.

I do enjoy it. Magnificent view indeed. Very well caught as well: the silhouettes are nice but the main focus on the sky make incredible effect.
Excellent work, TFS

Wow, sunsets like this don't happen everyday, you've captured the beauty of it perfectly. The colours are out of this world.
The sunset didn't happen over here at all, well, nowhere near as spectacular as this.

Wow - the sky is on fire. It was definitely worth running for your camera. The silhouetted vegetation provide a good base for this excellent photo. Tfs, Marlene

Excellent capture of the sunset. The portrait format suits it well. You got it at just the right moment, when the colours are saturated the most.
