Sunset with Glitter Path was created by paulevans

I've been down to the shores of Lough Neagh for the last three evenings after work.

This evening I caught this fabulous glitter path across the Lough.



Enjoy!

Paul,

That is one GREAT shot. I am holding my fingers crossed that you kept shooting a few minutes thereafter as well so as to try and catch (1) the Etruscan sun and (2) the green flash.

Please say yes. :D

Thanks guys!

Anthony, I kept shooting to the very end but I don't think I'd ever get an Etruscan Sun or a Green Flash from that location as it is an inland lake with land about 15 miles away. In fact I was surprised at just how far down the Sun goes!

Er, mine were on BBC Newsline :-) Those were taken Monday evening. Not often we get superb sunsets three nights in a row and it's just a short way down from my office to Lough Neagh!
