Yup, getting near Halloween.
Damn you Chang,
I wanted to be first.
(It is kinda pretty)
Ooooh… You didn’t photoshop this, did you? It’s gorgeous.
I resized it in Photoshop. Otherwise it’s pretty much as it came out of the camera. Now, mind you, what I saw and what the camera saw are different; what I saw had a bit more color gradation.
I bet you have that without the benefit of forest fires, too. Tonight’s sunset in the Valley isn’t quite as scary as yesterday’s with that giant cloud hanging from one horizon to the other, but it still ain’t pretty.
Red sky at night, sailor’s delight.
Looks like you should have a nice day tomorrow, according to what my great-grandfather used to say.
When the evening sky burns a fiery red and the moon glows a brilliant blue, the aliens will attack. Pray our robot oppressors will protect us.
Wow. That’s stunning. Thank you!
We had an ungodly beautiful sunset last night. Even the Eastern horizon glowed from all the light reflecting off the clouds. Electric pink to fire orange and red, back to orangish-pink, and eventually fading into purple. Now I’m wondering… have the SoCal fires put enough ash into the atmosphere to affect sunsets around the world?
Gorgeous! This was so awesome to see pop up on my LJ friendslist. So vibrant.
Wow. That should be a desktop background. That is gorgeous.
I caught this one the other night, too. Awesome. The best I’ve seen in some time. I’m glad you got a picture of it. I was without my camera.
Inspiring! Epic! Moving!
I think I see..God in there somewhere!
Lovely and, as Adam said, without the fires to enhance the beauty.
It’s bizarre to see the setting sun so red out SoCal way. Gorgeous, of course, and I wish I could have taken a picture of it, but I would have much rather had an ordinary looking setting sun (which is still darned pretty) and no fires.
This looks like a book cover.
And now it is! (Let the false posting on Wikipedia commence!)
I enjoy all your sunset photographs, but dang, that was an especially good one.
