Where do I start with this image? It was taken one chilled November's evening when I was with workshop regular, Ian Brennan. He is a softly spoken, ex navy Lieutenant form Co. Cork, with a wicked sense of humour and a passion for photography. Together we have shared some incredible times at locations right around Cornwall and the Western Highlands of Scotland. Yet nothing had prepared us for what we witnessed on this evening.
For, as the afternoon wore on and the sun lowered, we watched the sky evolve with increasing anticipation. And lo and behold, as the low cloud base crept in from the west, it ever so slowly, began to glow.
What we witnessed during the next fifty minutes will stay with me forever. For the sky and shoreline was set ablaze with incredible flaring hues and reflections. All we could do was shoot the display in awed silence. I continuously checked that I was honestly capturing the intense colours (and have ensured they remained so through the subsequent processing).
As the final smudge of scarlet faded in the sky, Ian turned to me with a smile and quipped, "So you get paid for doing this!"
Aside from the options available in the drop down menu below, this image would suit reproduction as a large fine art print mounted within a heavily carved, ornate, black, or antique gold, frame. This impressive piece would create a striking feature amongst clean, white surroundings. Or it would reside amongst the dark, richly textured surroundings of a study or sitting room.
