Default Leeuwin sunset

I have been on holidays for 3 weeks (and busy getting my house ready for months before lol) and showing off my bit of Australia to friends from the USA
being the escort/chauffeur I didnt get to many photos , but i did get to go places and see things i wouldnt normally
such as this sunset, just north of Fremantle with the sail training ship Leeuwin anchored off the coast


its going to take me a while to get through what i have taken, but i will endeavour to put a few up here to share with you guys

thanks for all the comments guys
it really was a great sunset to see, very memorable
i dont feel the photo does it justice
and of course you cant see the rest of the sky
i did do a fisheye shot later and from a different place to try and get all the sky in

from memory i underexposed it
then did a levels in GIMP
no filters were used

thanks again
