Photo of the Week 28

Photo of the Week 28
This amazing sunset photo was taken in my own back yard!  That's right I only had to walk our my door to see this beautiful view of the sky.  Ok, so it wasn't my BACK yard, it was the front yard.

Usually, the amazing sunrise and sunset photographs we see are when the photographer travels a great distance for the pristine backdrop of untouched nature.  Urban scenes of such shots are not so common.  Even less common are natural looking scenes in an urban setting.  This was the case for this beautiful photo of mine.

Sunsets are dramatic this time of year.  The light though the clouds and the range of colors displayed is amazing to behold.  No sunset is the same as another.  This is one of the reasons that we love watching them and photographing them.

Every so often, I check out what the conditions will be for a sunset as it gets close to time.  If there are too few or too many clouds, I know that there will not be a good showing of fire in the sky.  This particular day was just right with the timing, angle of the sun, and density of clouds to be lit up with sunlight.

What you cannot see with this shot is that there is a house just barely out of frame on the right hand side.  It was not easy to keep that two story roof out of the picture either.  The sun was setting just behind the building so the bulk of the gorgeous light was being lost to me.

The clouds were sweeping across the sky with some light wind and the trees in the foreground were silhouetted with the brightness of the clouds.  This was too good of an opportunity to pass up for me.

With this shot nailed, and a few tweaks using Photoshop, the colors of the sky really pop out from the deep shades of purple to the glowing yellow-oranges where the light is still the brightest.
