When I actually studied art, Rene Magritte was always one of my favourites. Not the most fashionable surrealist, I liked his thought-provoking images. This one, Empire of Light, is not one of his most famous paintings, but I love it. I'm not sure how long I looked at it before I realised what was 'wrong' with it.

I used to have a copy of it on my bedroom door. It was the first thing I thought of when I took this photo yesterday:


Sunset over Newport and the sky looked like it was on fire. This photo is almost SOOC, but I will admit to bumping up the colours a little bit. Who could resist?

Gorgeous photo Kate - and no, I wouldn't be able to resist a touch of tweaking either .
