A Quick Sunset Post – January 03, 2014

I’ve been sitting on these photos for a month now . . . not literally, of course.

There were no clouds on the Western horizon, but starting roughly above us, a line of clouds catching the rays of the setting sun. 

The view above is looking South from the front of our house. As usual with sunset photos, very minor adjustments.

The view below is looking North . . .

The light was changing very fast, and I missed the beginning, and most dramatic part, of the sunset. I only caught what I did because my office suddenly was awash with an orange glow. Indeed, the light changed so fast that in the time it took me to walk 50 feet to the side of the house, the sky was already noticeably less orange. Or is it red? Pink?

The shots above are taken with my Sigma 10-20mm lens so that I could capture as much of the sky as possible, hence the distortion to the buildings.

As I said, it did not last long, and within a minute, all I could do is shoot a close-up of what looked like some cloud dogs racing West.

And then it was over . . . just like this post.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.

Should you still nominate me, I will suspect you pulled my name at random, and that you are not, in fact, a reader of my blog.  If you wish to know more, please read below.
