Skywatch Friday: Sunset

Last week I went down to an observation deck overlooking the lake. There, as the sun set behind a cloud bank, a most spectacular sunset was visible for at least 40 minutes. I took many photos, as did several other photographers. I was shooting without a filter so the colors are slightly redder than they were during the event. In spite of this, the photos truly reflect the brilliance and majesty of the sunset. I kept thinking I had somehow entered the world of Bosch, volcanoes, and the Apocalypse. Beautiful and Disturbing.

These photos are taken perhaps fifteen minutes apart.
