I haven't joined in on You Capture for quite a while and when I popped in over there yesterday to see the new challenge I just had to be a part of it. The challenge this week was colorful. I had hoped to capture a new flock of Cedar Waxwings that have been foraging in the cedar tree right outside the schoolroom window, but no such luck. I guess it was too late in the day. Then, as the day, the crazy, exhausting, fun day that we had was winding down I noticed a pinkish hue being cast on the wall through the curtains. I looked out the living room window...a prime sunset watching spot...and saw the most beautiful pink sky. And yes, I captured it. After two or three days of rain and gray, overcast skies, it was quite the special treat to see this last bit of a beautiful sunset.
This picture is straight out of the camera (SOOC). I didn't doctor it up at all. I didn't even crop it. Now, I could have probably intensified the color or cropped it a little, but I didn't want to. I usually do edit my photos, but this one, it was just right for me. I love the tree silhouettes and the pink billowy clouds. xoANG
