The last rays of the setting sun...
Lens: Sigma 18-125 DC HSM Camera: K-70 Photo Location: Kalbarri, WA ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F6.3

Winters here aren't really too hard to take just caught the last rays of the setting sun while waiting for the sunset. This is a 15 frame stitch in PS, but the remarkable thing (to me at least), is that they are shot at 18mm focal length. I have (had? ) a self imposed rule of a minimum of 35mm for pano stitches, and while you can see the distortion in the aircraft contrail curling overhead, I thought the overall effect was quite pleasing.

Quite pleasing indeed, what with the colors (esp. the oranges against the blues).
I would just clone out that red flare near the top of the frame, perhaps crop a little from the sides, but I'm not sure about what final framing I'd like, so yours is ok
Nice picture(s)!

Cool how one little cloud in the middle gets illuminated. UFO-like for sure
