        This is not a sunset but a sunrise :noidea:. It's over the lovely island of Ilha Grande (big island), Brazil which is an unspoilt island. It's 75sq miles of untouched beauty with an amazing ecosystem of flora and fauna. Only accessible by boat/ferry it has no vehicles apart from a fire engine, a police car and a rubbish lorry. No proper roads but some dirt roads. Although it was restricted it is now a 'popular' tourist venue. If you like quiet and beauty it's the place for you.

            On the way to newsagents, saw the sky was looking interesting, so quickly took Dog outside the village:

                  Thanks, that's now the current Desktop wallpaper on my laptop (until my next decent sunrise or sunset shot), and looks much better than above as not reduced in size and on a high resolution screen.

                  I've used another of my dawn sunrise shots as the wallpaper for the lockscreen on my tablet, so when I drag my finger along the horizon to unlock it, I get a sparkling trail of lights across the dawn sky.

                    First time I've seen a decent sunset in ages, taken on a Dog walk earlier, Dog got a bit impatient as I waited for those clouds to get behind the Pines, despite a stiff breeze blowing them along at a rate of knots.

                          Thanks @Anthony Rogers :)
                          I normally struggle with that lens, but I think I just need to practice with it. Practice is another way of saying 'previous user error' :biggrin:. It was bitter out there! I was chilled to the bone, and not happy at all. I appreciate your comments :)

                            Scrolling down further, where did you take the photos of the red panda?

                              When you click on an image, if you scroll down the page, you will see tags for each photo. The animal photos were taken at ZSL Whipsnade zoo :) The red pandas are my favourites :dbgrtmb:
