This sunset is for Pam (Coasties).
Myself and Lisa went for a sunset dinner cruise around the Island of Santorini. This small boat was sailing past, and I couldn't resist getting this shot. I'll be posting the rest of the sunset shots on TL, and getting back to the usual posts on this site.
I hope you like this one Pam, and everyone else who has a look.

I'll be away for a few days again over this weekend, as we have a wedding to attend.

Thanks for looking, Have a great weekend.

Hi Alan. I am not usually a landscape person, but I have to say that this sunset is exquisite. The white circle above the boat, the color of the sky, the light beam reflecting on the golden waters... stunning composition and light. Congratulations on a wonderful shot, and welcome back. We have missed you. : )

Alan, this is very beautiful - to me, even more beautiful than your previous post, which was already beautiful enough.

Great composition and pov; very nice mood, warm colors.


Fabulous photo, Alan! Did you go to Greece for your birthday? I know you were considering that as an option.

The boat probably isn't the best for TN but sunsets certainly are. Gorgeous!


Hi Alan,

Well you know I am a landscape person, and I think you have done a superb job with this sunset. A really, really excellent job with the composition and framing. Spot On!


Great shot Alan!
It seems that the bout is the main subject, so maybe it would've been better for TE, but on the other hand this is bveautiful sunset created by nature.
No doubt lovely shot with great mood.
I like it very much.

Helo Alan!
What a wonderful view! I love this photo and I'm waiting for more...

Stunning sunset Alan. The boat placed just under the sun makes it look so special with the glowing reflections on the water. It is a beautiful composition with superb colours. Well done.

Perfect sunset and timing with the ship positioned thus..Great work! Enjoy the wedding celebration Alan..

Hello Alan,
Just wonderful! Composition is flawless from the most excellent POV possible... Colors are great in a crisp capture with very good textures...

Terrific colours you have captured here.

Reminds me of "A Painted Ship upon a Painted Sea"
