Couldn't agree more, both sets!  I do especially like the perspective and composition of the second one in this second set Ron.  Really, really nice! :)

On my way back from my regular visit to the Scottish Highlands, I stopped off in the Glencoe area, this time in Kinlochleven. I finally saw the first spectacular sunset of the autumn. I've always found that sunsets seem to be much more impressive in the autumn (fall) for some reason.

I started off wide, with the 24mm f/1.4 MkII on the 5D MkIII.

After waiting for the right light for half an hour and stopping to photograph something in the opposite direction, with the colours getting more intense by the minute, I finally decided "job done" and packed everythying away. I started walking back to the hotel, but looked around, only to find the colours had got even stronger. I was torn, as the filters take a long time to sort out, plus I had the 70-200 attached. In the end I couldn't resist, so just put the 70-200 on the tripod without any filters and this was the result.

As I was finally walking back to the hotel, I passed a family literally running in the opposite direction, only to hear the little girl say "Mummy, it looks like the end of the road is on fire".

Those are both fabulous shots.  The first one has a great lead in with the little stream, and the compression of the color layers on the second one is equally fabulous!
Thanks Dustin. My landscape work has been almost non-existent this year, with just a handful of previous shots, so it's always good to know I haven't lost my touch.
Richard, I agree with Dustin, these are fabulous!  I really like the first as well, very nice composition.  Looking at the second, how can I not like it equally as well?  It's really quite well done!  I so need to get over there one of these days!

So that's why I never found him !

Here's a sunset sky shot a short while ago - the last picture taken on my faithful 5D before it went to a new owner  :'(

Sunsets in stormy conditions can give some very stranage ans surreal colours, but I've never been lucky enough to be in position to get a photo, usually I find I'm driving to/from work. I can't make up my mind which is my favourite, probably one of the first two, but with a lightning strike :P.
