  1. Was kind of surprised this evening. I expected 100% overcast with the on-coming rain. But the rain is still far enough west to give me a some-what decent sunset to photograph again. The yellowish/orange of post sunset... The red flash was rather selective and kind of broad...
  2. Tonight was a semi-decent sunset. No flashy uber color but a nice design of clouds. An overview of the cloud status when I got out to the pond... Zoomed in a bit for the best of the color, what little there was...
  3. This is not going to happen much longer. I can just barely get off of work, drive home, grab the camera and make it out to the pond in time for sunset now. Oh well, it has been a good run this year. Tonight was a perfect night as far as clouds go. Some high cirrus was riding around the top of the ridge and stay persistent enough through the sunset. What I started with when I got to the pond, at local sunset... When the orange started, I zoomed into it to show the detail better... An overview of the orange flash... And ending the evening with the red flash...
  4. Might this be the last 80+ degree sunset for the year? If so it was a semi-decent one. Here is the pre-sunset with some wind-blown white clouds... Here is the orange during the post-sunset... Here is the sort of red, during the post sunset...
  5. ^ Gorgeous colors. Too bad it never lasts as long as that rather monochromatic white stuff.
  6. Tonight. Looking east... Looking west...
  7. Wait, a 384 hour map and you expect something other than goofy? Might need to retorque your bolts.
  8. Some more clouds for the sunset this evening. Pre-sunset... Post sunset
  9. Not much in the way of clouds for this evening. But just enough to make it worth the effort. Started off with a rather vivid sundog... The beginning of the post sunset... The ending of the post sunset...
  10. Could you imagine a +25 to +30 week or two in July or August? It would be break out the body bags time.
  11. The wind was up today so no reflection stuff. Did have plenty of clouds though for sunset...
  12. Some clouds to shoot again. Seems like it has been awhile but looking back here it has only been four days of severe clear.
  13. Another 90+ day at KIND also.
  14. Tonight's sunset... Some more distant cloud shadows post sunset...
  15. Both ends of the sunset this evening. It was not gold pre-sunset, nor bronze. I do not know what this color is... At the other end of the sunset there was some very distant cloud shadow stuff going on...
