Golden Brown Sky over a Calm Blue Ocean

113th place (joint)
Sunset over the ocean. I was awed by the incredible colours in the sky and their reflection on the sea due to the brownish braided clouds which were so thick that the sun, still relatively high in the sky (thus still very bright), was tinted to an intense reddish hue which gave the scene those wonderful colours. That amazing combination lasted just a fleeting moment, seconds later the sun came through the clouds in full strength and would have damaged the sensor so I had to frame and shoot fast.
