Travel Theme; Sunsets

I love taking photos of sunsets, and have managed to enter plenty of them already in the Weekly Photo Challenge : Silhouette!  In the end I posted 4 sets of photos, and I had lots more to chose from.

My most striking sunset photo however is one that I haven’t posted yet.  I took this photograph while moored on our boat in Newtown Creek on the Isle of Wight.  We used to go there all the time on our ‘Shadow‘ which was a motor boat, which we had moored in Portsmouth Harbour.  Now we have a Colvic Countess which is a small Yacht that we moor in Chichester Harbour, and it takes her a lot longer to get to the Isle of Wight than the Shadow used to!  Also Chichester Harbour itself is a beautiful place to explore by boat, so we have rarely gone far from home recently.

The sunsets in Newtown Creek were usually beautifully tranquil, but this one really stands out as to me it looks as if the sky is on fire!

PS!  Silly me, I was wondering why people  were liking my post ‘Travel Theme: Bright’  that’s because I called this one Bright rather than Sunsets!  Sorry for any confusion :-s

PPS!! now I’m feeling even sillier!! This week’s Travel Theme is Soft! Sunsets is from August 17th
