A Simple Cloudy Sunset

November 2, 2013

Photographers must develop awareness of the quality of light.  I love shooting landscapes and the quality of light is every bit as important as the subject when shooting scenics.  Sometimes the light and its palette in the sky is all the subject needed.  Tonight was one of those nights, and, while sitting at home just before dinner, I saw a red glow develop in the eastern sky.  A quick glance to the west confirmed that the sun was painting the clouds, so off to the closest open field I drove, and capturd the beauty of a lovely humid November sunset.
