Under a Beautiful Blanket of Clouds by taffy

Under a Beautiful Blanket of Clouds

Sunset usually provides a treat, but tonight was unlike anything I've seen since we've moved here. The entire sky was a blanket of clouds, with the setting sun lighting them from underneath in a combination of purples and reds. It really was amazing and this doesn't begin to do it justice.
Composed from 5 verticals to create a panorama in LR.
Coincidentally, Junko was photographing with one of our friends, about 20 miles north of here! https://365project.org/jyokota/365/2020-01-08

Fascinating formation. Must have been quite a sight to see.

Stunning sunset clouds!

Wow that looks frightening
January 9th, 2020  
Wow what a fantastic sky! It must have been wonderful to see from your vantage point!

Love the shape of the arch it creates. I wonder re lightening the shadows in the city below just a teeny tad? What do you think?
January 9th, 2020  
The cloud textures make them seem almost like a nobbley blanket
January 9th, 2020  
That is crazy amazing!
January 9th, 2020  
Wow This is amazing Fav

@jgpittenger I do agree -- it should be lighter but on my computer, it is lighter than it shows up here. I actually had raised shadows and it looked unreal (as if the sunset looks real!) so I lowered them again.

Astonishing!
January 9th, 2020  
I find it so funny that we simultaneously took photos of the sky and we weren't even together! Because we often are side by side, people will assume we were!
January 9th, 2020  
Like a blanket is being pulled over or off the city. Truly nothing short of phenomenal. A wonderful coincidence that you and Junko shot this around the same time. FAV!
January 9th, 2020  
@taffy my photos usually look darker on 365 too especially the shadows
January 9th, 2020  
Your pov truly shows up the blanketing effect - what amazing clouds. Don't think I've ever caught that before. Love the rooftops as the base.
January 9th, 2020  
Wow. I don't think I've ever seen such a thing. Wonderful, to be so high up for this!
January 9th, 2020
