Sunset after a hot day - Pentax Q and 06
Lens: 06 Camera: Pentax Q Photo Location: Mosquito Creek, Queensland Australia ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/320s Aperture: F2.8

Very interesting sunset tonight. I had the Q and 06 with me. As I said in a previous post, it is very hot here - 41C (106F) today and 45C (114F) yesterday. The sky tells the story. The sun had already gone down. The orange was amazing. I adjusted the exposure a bit but that was all. At the top of the pic some rain is starting to fall from high base cloud. There is a bit in the distance as well. It evaporated before it reached the ground. We got a few spots - not enough to lay the dust. There were a few streaks where the sky showed through as a beautiful soft turquoise. I tried to get it back in RAW but I couldn't get anywhere near it. Desperate for rain at the moment.

Beautiful sky. Color matches the temps you've been having. On fire.

'sky on fire' indeed. You're more than welcome to have some of the rain we have been getting in California lately!

Thanks for the comments. Temperature is back to the high 30s now so it is almost cool!
