Skywatch Friday: Inferno Sunset

Inferno Sunset 2

Taken on August 28th.

This sunset was so spectacular I took 6 photographs of it and the cloud formations as they passed over our garden, this probably one of our best ones yet I think. I used Landscape scene mode to shoot them, normally I would use the Sunset one, however that was a little too red in colour for this and the camera wouldn't focus in Automatic so I chose the infinity focus mode.

Thanks everyone, yes it was exactly like fire and the base of the clouds was quite low too. I think the best sunsets and sunrises are here in Scotland-you just have to brave the cold most of the time LOL.

That would be "blazing inferno". It doesn't get much more colorful than that. Stunning capture. Mickie:)
