Magnificent shot, Ian. You've provided the sky with the lion's share of the palette and it certainly does not disappoint. Stunning!

@Ron: Hi Ron......yes the sky was amazing. I normally wouldn't take a photo of just the sky but this one was too good to pass up :-)

The foreground came up in sepia almost and the sky is still blue! A wonderful mixture, the result is pleasant! The light is so soothing!
