Sky Watch - Delicate Sunset - Post 103


Sunset November 3, 2008 - Hwy. 5 North, White County, Arkansas

On the way back home from a jaunt earlier this week, the beautiful colors of the sunset caught my eye. The sun had been a blazing ball of brilliant peachy-red, and colored the unclouded sky with the most amazing colors. I think it must have been dust particles that picked up the glorious tints. Within 2 minutes of taking the photo above, all the color was gone. I did no 'doctoring' on this photo; it's as it came straight from the camera, with tiny bit of cropping to eliminate a powerline pole.

Sky Watch was created by Dot and is now brought to you by our friends Klaus, Sandy, Fishing Guy, Ivar, and Wren, and the newest team member, Louise, from Albuquerque. Visit the Sky Watch Friday home page anytime after 7:30 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time on Thursdays to see sky photos from around the world. You'll be glad you did.

Very nice sunset. Sometimes it's the one's with no clouds that are the most spectacular.

Great photo.
A real prize winner.
Print it about 12x16, frame it and hang it on the wall.

Come visit,
Troy and Martha

Beautiful sunset. Nice colors.

Hildegarde said...

Very beautiful and soft ! P.S. I don't understand monochromes myself (yet) but I am an obedient student and I will paint the demanded 30 layers ... I think :-), meanwhile we can of course do our regular painting but that doesn't go so fast.

Annie said...

Wren said...

Isn't it wonderful when you can capture that beauty in the camera? I'm often disappointed that my photos are only a reminder of what I saw, without coming close to representing it.

Congratulations on an outstanding photo.
