Day 218 – August 5, 2012

For anyone who has been following me for a while, you probably recognize these twin palm trees.  They are part of the view from my back yard, and have been featured in a couple shots so far this year.  However, they have never been featured with such beautiful colors.  For some reason the sunset was super gorgeous tonight and this 20 second exposure proved it by capturing these amazing colors and super bright planet and/or star (not sure).

  3. Beautiful! If I remember rightly, you live not too far from the desert – yes?

  4. Amazing shot! As you say, the colors are so beautiful. Perfect long exposure. :-)

    • Thank you Inga. This was one of those times when I was just lucky enough to have the right light mixing in the sky and the right exposure time. I can’t believe I caught such gorgeous colors. I usually expect to have to Photoshop my night time exposures. Not this one. It turned out perfect!

  5. Love this one! I love the color progression of the night sky. :)
