autumn sunset

autumn sunset

Viewed from the summit of Mount Lofty overlooking Adelaide and across Gulf St. Vincent.

The columns of cumulus cloud low in the sky are not forming over water
- they are over Yorke Peninsula, about 90 km to the west.

Can you see there is a little rain falling?
At the time of shooting I didn't think it would amount to anything much,
but wonders never cease - we actually had a heavy shower overnight!
Rain, at last!

It looks like a stampede, or a wild fire burning unchecked across the prairie. The layers of clouds seem to roll forward like billowing flame. Fortunately this is a conflagration only to be savored.

That's one pretty sunset and excellent exposure. The +2/3rds is because it was dark overhead at picture center and you wanted to save the definition? Or, did you blend two and this is for the darker area? I'm just surprised you were able to have any definition at the horizon. I would think it would have blown out. Very pretty moment & congrats' on rain; we're drying up out here 8o-( g
