In the nick of time, I’m squeezing in an entry for Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week – Intense.

One evening, sitting eating outside a restaurant in Playa Honda, Lanzarote, we saw this amazing, intense sunset. I left my friends eating, and dashed to get a good shot before it disappeared (very quickly, as it happens)! Only when I got home did I notice the sky reflected in the puddle….

The limited colour palette in this image appeals to me.

  1. Wonderful balance and curve. The buildings almost the colour of the sea, and the wonderfully placed puddle of sunset. You’re back with bells on.

  2. Gorgeous sunset Sue and very intense!

  3. Great image for the theme, Sue. Love that small, intense sunset reflection in the puddle.

  4. Amazing photo, Sue! The colors are gorgeous and the puddle…fantastic.

  5. Very nice, fits “intense” very well.

  6. This looks almost like a large fire in the distance. Very unusual, and well-captured, Sue!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. I can see what Pete means, that does almost look like the bush fires on the Cape peninsula last summer – the sky reflecting the fire. Great capture for spur of the moment!

  8. wonderful photograph Sue, love the design and colour placements!! 🙂

  9. The reflection in the puddle is like a hidden bonus!

  10. Really intense, so inspiring – very well captured… 🙂

  11. Stunning orange light Sue and the glowing puddle is the finishing touch.

  12. a fiery return Sue!! Beautiful!!- and yes that little pool of light!!

  13. LOVE the intensity! And the puddle 🙂

  14. Very dramatic shot and a great composition.

  15. Amazing end of day photo; I love the splash of sun left behind in one of the puddles.

  16. Like the sky is on fire, Susan, beautiful.
    Are your friends used to your photographic dashes by now? 😉
