Scrabo Sunset over Strangford Lough

One of the very first paintings to ever make an impression on me was JMW Turner’s ‘The Fighting Temeraire‘ – It’s not a finely detailed picture, but the impression of sun and sea and smoke is all the more powerful because it is the colour, not the detail that makes the image. Once in a while you come across the real thing: a Turneresque sunset, and once in a blue moon you come across it with a camera to hand and the time to stop and snap.

So, this little snap is posted in homage to JMW’s glorious artistic interpretation of sunset over water!
