It’s hard to predict how a sunset or sunrise is going to turn out. Time is a precious commodity, so I try my best to judge the clouds before I make a decision to head out to shoot photos. My guesses get better and better as time goes by, but I still get it wrong. An hour before this sunset I would have bet money that it was going to throw color all over the undersides of the clouds.
I waited long past the set, but the “epic” colors I anticipated never materialized. The sun did throw some subtle color across the sky about 15 minutes after it set. It painted the edges of the clouds behind the power lines a light pinkish purple.
And it cast a wonderful pink glow over our neighborhood. I’ll take it. 🙂
