I agree with Phil, the lines in the sky are lovely, but it is the orange of the sunset which really makes this.

What a lovely shot. Well caught!

Looking at your stats I've realised I'm so busy trying to juggle other factors, that I totally forget about the ISO number. I must get back to learning more about it and then actually using it!

the lines in the sky, enhanced by the wide angle and that strip of red on the horizon. So minimal, so dark, so good!

The HC doesn't surprise me at all - marvelous shot. Like the way you are 'reaching out' to the abstract here. Whether this is intentional or not, I don't know! All I can say is that this is one of your all time best (pour moi)

I knew this one would do well! Congrats on the HC. The best part of this for me is the way the clouds radiate from the central point. I'll be down in LA until Tuesday visiting family but I'll look at EPZ if I have time. No clouds for the next few days. Maybe some fog down there I hope but we'll see. LOL Jeanie... you would not want to see me slipping around. Not the most graceful thing, needless to say! Especially when you only have a few seconds to click and run!
