The last sunset of 2019 gave the gift of a purple sea. The pier is at Alness on the Cromarty Firth, Scotland.

Some information on the pier from roavr agency: During WW1 the American Navy took over Dalmore Distillery and used it as a mine base.  The so-called ‘Yankee Pier’ still juts out into the firth.
