Penha d'Águia and Faial at dusk

A first attempt at night time with my new Panasonic Lumix GH2. I took the picture from the Faial fort pointing the camera to the rock formation of Penha d'Águia. The picture was already taken at night time (about 45 minutes after sunset) hence the burnt highlights in the villages of Águia de Baixo and Faial. I liked the colour of the sky, tho.
