Photographer's Note

That day, the sky was grey over the islands. Then, for a couple of minutes, a single red cloud and a red reflection above the islands, changed the landscape. This photo was taken one minute before this other one.

The two islands in the background are part of the Cíes Islands. They're the Middle or Lighthouse Island and the Northern Island (the South Island, not shown, is to the left). These two are joined by a stripe of white sand and a natural lagoon. They have been called "the gods' islands" since ancient times, and not without reason: they're a paradise (even though the ocean is incredibly cold there).
The photo was processed at Camera Raw and Photoshop for contrast (levels and curves), cropping (the sky) and a warming filter. I know it's dark, and I like it that way; the impression when you looked at the islands was a bit gloomy (while the rest of the landscape was brightly tinted with the sunset).
Thanks for watching and for your comments!
