Fire in the Sky

A break in the clouds as the sun goes down, which seems quite common for Vancouver sunsets (Oct 2011).

It may be a selection effect, and it could be just down to the fact that I’ve seen more Vancouver sunsets than anywhere else but it does often seem to be the case that the rainy weather breaks near the end of the day, leaving us with some great colour and cloud formations. This is one of those photos that I was glad to reprocess from raw as the photo straight out of the camera clipped the highlights. But even now, it still looks more like a painting to me than a photo; there’s just something about those colours and the textures.
