Excellent. The sky "flame" is projected on the water mirror and so are the poles.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the famous Loch Ness, 15 minutes away from where I live
Time
It was around 7PM, I missed the sunset unfortunately, but caught the after light casting over the clouds
Lighting
I wanted this photo too be like something I would see in a dream, using long exposure, I was able to create this effect as the water and clouds look very silky
Equipment
This was shot on a Nikon D3200, on a 18-55mm kit lens, I used a tripod to achieve the long exposure, and ND filters to cut down the light
Inspiration
I have always wanted to get a photo like this, always had it planned out in my head, but never got round to it, this time I picked my self up and got out my house, I researched about the golden hour, and that's what mainly inspired me
Editing
At the time of this photo, I used the basic of basic editing software, which was the integrated edited in the windows 7 gallery, as I said before, I tried to make this very dreamy/surreal, so I emphasized the contrast, and vibrancy, so achieve this look
In my camera bag
I use my Nikon D3200, Mostly have my two lenses, 18-55mm and my 18-105mm, Always have my tripod on me at all times, and carry a few extra SD cards with me just in case, And some ND filters, or my Polariser
Feedback
No matter where your going or what you are doing, always try and bring your camera wherever you go, you never know when that golden opportunity shows up, picture your dream shot in your head, and think about how you can achieve that particular shot, this helps me greatly, and gives me more enjoyment in photography.
