If you have taken more than a few sunsets, you have probably experienced this. You think the sunset is going to be brilliant, only to have it fizzle out in the last minute. Or it looks no good, then at the last minute (after you decided not to pull your camera out), BAMM, everything changes and it’s a beautiful sunset. If you enjoy taking sunsets, then you know that the scene can change in just a few moments. And this change can go on for some time after the sun has dropped below the horizon, until it’s almost dark.
This image was taken about five minutes after “A Hard Sunset to Shoot“. Every portion of the sky seemed to change colors and intensity as the sun fell further behind the clouds.
