Sunset - sky on fire - Canning Creek, Southern Queensland, 12 May 2017
Lens: Leica DC Vario-Summicron 6-42.8mm/f2-5.9 Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 Photo Location: Canning Creek, Southern Queensland ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/160s Aperture: F5 
Posted By: PJ1, 05-12-2017, 04:19 AM

Coming home this evening this sunset hit me squarely in the eye. The edges of the clouds were picked out in sharp shimmering lines against the red. I am just on the edge of big sky country and the sunsets can be spectacular. I grabbed the P&S from the door pocket and shot while I could. The best was gone in a matter of seconds.


Shot in Raw, processed with PS Elements 12. Minimal PP - just enough to pick out what I could of the cloud edges (nature did it better) and cropped for composition. There was no time to think much about composition at the time.

Thanks, EM. The sun may be setting on my life out here soon, but I hope to find another bush hideout.

Love the appearance of the sky! Beautiful colors and patterns.
