Your Classic Sunset



Here is your SkyWatch image.

Well Ok not your normal classic sunset image, but it's one of my sunset images in good old black and white. ( what else is there ? )

This shows Clew Bay and the Nephin Beg Range across the bay. It was taken from the beach at Old Head in Westport during a wonderful sunset.

I believe that Westport is my next trip away at the end of the month. I will be looking for a few more different locations along the wonderful coastline of Co Mayo to add to my collection. Sunsets like this one will not be available as its a different time of the year and the sun will be setting in a different position.

  1. That's a beautiful choice for black and white. I love the reflection of the sun in the water and the sky looks so stormy with those dark clouds!

  3. It's a stunner, this photo; I already love Westport for its mountains and bay. The jagged rocks you captured here and the soft light clouds are a wonderful contrast.

  6. You know, I love a sunset and I love the colours but I gotta say, this way it makes you look at the textures and appreciate them. It is an awesome shot and an obvious sunset despite the lack of colour, maybe because of the lack of colour.
    Great shot.
