Sunset Color

I wanted to share one more from the sunset I had shared a few posts ago.  I’ve been waiting to share as I’ve been trying to get it to look like what we saw that night.  The sun had long gone down over the horizon.  We were shivering cold, but we could not leave as the sky kept getting more and more interesting.  Typically the foreground clouds light up with color.  Not this time, instead the color seemed to fill up the sky behind them, which was rather unique.  I hope this does not look too dark.  My visual memory is that it was dark by this time, and the only way I could get the color to be as vibrant as I remember was to make the overall image a bit darker.  The area in the middle top is what I’ll remember, it was just glowing!

    Very nice! Not sure if you added some vignetting but it has that appearance, which really works. Great shot.
