What's the story behind your amazing picture Rev? I could look at this and never get tired. Gem of a picture, thank you.

Comment by: Ellen on 29th November 2014 at 02:26

Simply amazing! It might easily be a Martian landscape!

Comment by: Bren on 29th November 2014 at 06:45

WOW! The best yet ...thankyou Rev.

Comment by: Eileen on 29th November 2014 at 17:26

I,m with Aubrey

Comment by: Jonno on 29th November 2014 at 17:30

Typical statement from you again Mick, you very rarely make a positive comment about a good photo, i do believe that you possess a slightly jealous streak in your make up. Who in the slightest, is interested if your house is somewhere in the 'black bit'? if we could see it, then fair enough. Rev David, a brilliant capture thank you.

Comment by: Maureen on 29th November 2014 at 17:56

Yes Giovanni...

Comment by: Fran on 29th November 2014 at 17:59

Great pic

Comment by: dot on 29th November 2014 at 18:31

Magical.

Comment by: Beryl on 29th November 2014 at 19:18

Wow! Oh to be reminded that God is good to give us such beauty

Comment by: Rev David Long on 29th November 2014 at 20:24

Thanks for the comments - there have been some spectacular sunsets over the past fortnight - and I was lucky to be at home to catch this one last Tuesday.
Mick - hang your St George's flag out of your window and I'll see if I can get a shot of it from up here for Jonno!

Comment by: Giovanni on 29th November 2014 at 21:11

What medium do you paint in Maureen? ;-)

Comment by: Maureen on 29th November 2014 at 21:35

Giovanni..oil paint..always have done,I got some watercolours a few months ago,but somehow my heart isn't into them,what do you use,and do you do portraits or landscapes buildings etc..I'm mostly portraits or animals.

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 29th November 2014 at 22:17

Jean; How many objcts can you see in this sky?
Great photo Rev.David. When and at what time was it taken?

Comment by: Giovanni on 30th November 2014 at 00:34

Maureen - Acrylics and water colours.
Landscapes, seascapes and some abstracts! As you know its very theraputic..I do caracatures of family and friends!

Comment by: Rev David Long on 30th November 2014 at 07:34

The shot was taken at 16.08 on Tuesday 25th November, Ernest.

Comment by: Neil Cain on 30th November 2014 at 09:10

Nothing to add. Superb

Comment by: Garry on 30th November 2014 at 09:30

Jonno once again having a dig at Mick. tu tu tu.

Comment by: Giovanni on 30th November 2014 at 10:14

Maureen
I use acrylics and water-colours. I generally paint landscapes, seascapes and the occasional abstract. I also do caracatures of family and friends!

Comment by: Jonno on 30th November 2014 at 14:00

I am Garry, with good reason. I just wish that he would make a positive or negative comment on the quality, beauty etc, of the photos he views. I also do appreciate that he spends a lot of time on P-a-D for OUR benefit, here there and everywhere and that is very good of him, it's just the way he comments on photos that other subscribers have possibly gone out of their way to take and include on the site.

Comment by: Jean F (Wales) on 30th November 2014 at 15:05

Just a goreous fire Ernest!

Comment by: Jean F (Wales) on 30th November 2014 at 15:11

This was the same day and time we had a reddish pink sky like this but by the time i had got my camera and gone outside it was all fading away but what I did see of it was amazing Is a sky like that "normal" for this time of year ?

Comment by: Maureen on 30th November 2014 at 19:01

Giovanni,my post seems to have gone walkies..I've never even tried acrylic,how would you rate it against oils..I wouldn't mind trying them.

Comment by: Garry on 30th November 2014 at 19:46

Mick does make a Positive or Negative comment, that's what P-a-D is all about isn't it, Jonno.

Comment by: Giovanni on 1st December 2014 at 09:55

Maureen
Acrylics are more flexible than oils.
The drying time is the same as water-colours, you can over paint with them and they can be applied to water colour paper and oil board. Also it allows washes to be rendered and there isn't much wastage. Happy painting!
