Fiery sky  by golftragic

Fiery sky

I took this shot just after my computer went AWOL for weeks. The photo is minimally processed, just a few LR sliders and some noise reduction. The sky really did look like this. Quite intriguing thing though, this is sunset, and these clouds are in the eastern sky, nothing of note in the western sky at all. I was lying down resting my sore leg when Les looked out the window and yelled, 'look out there'! I took one look, leapt (?) up, grabbed my trusty 7D and hobbled outside into the back yard. When I'd done there I went to the front yard and climbed all over our garden to get the shots I wanted. Dunno what the neighbours thought of the mad woman standing in the garden bed in her PJs and slippers!
I've discovered on many evenings, the light "across for the setting sun" will be the most brilliant! Yours certainly was! This is amazing!

Many thanks for your comments. I'd never struck this eastern sunset thing before, but will watch for it now.

Very very cool -- what a difference with the cropping and processing. Fav!

Another super shot. Good to hear your computer is cranked up again.

This is really brilliant - total dedication to get this whilst nursing a sore leg and clad in your night attire!

@taffy Many thanks Taffy, this is a different shot from the the one in my alternative album though the colours are similar. Nature can sure turn it on!!

@onewing Much relief round here I can tell you, Babs. I dunno what to do with myself without my computer, couldn't even check out my photos.
