you capture::colorful

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

That is a gorgeous shot! And even better that you didn't "enhance" it.

Beautiful shot! Thanks so much for sharing this magical sunset with us. I'm sure it was even more incredible in person :)

Beautiful! I have to say I really enjoy the SOOC photos more than the ones that are heavily edited.

Such a beautiful sunset, editing just isn't always required!
