Spectacular Spring Sunset

 
On Sunday evening, as I was drawing the curtains in the house to keep out the nighttime chill, I noticed the woods between my house and the road were suffused with pink light.  I grabbed my camera and literally ran out of the house to capture some images because, as all photographers appreciate, sunset light waits for no man (or woman).  Though I captured 20 images, this was my best - by far.  I love the apparent multiple focal planes and the smoky look.

That's a real keeper, Scott! Poster material. Nice shot.

Nice one, Scott.

Packrat and John: Thank you for your compliments. I'm a very modest person (really), and don't "toot my own horn," but I am proud of this image. I'm going to enter it in a "natural year" photo contest underway in the area.

Whoa. That really is nice. It looks like there's a fire behind the trees.

That is quite beautiful, Scott. So glad you ran outside to take that shot. Wow!

Thanks, Robin Andrea and Mark. Yeah, I'm really glad I ran out of the house to capture the image, too. And, while I was taking the photograph, the scene didn't strike me at all like it was smoky or backlit by a fire, but it surely does now, doesn't it?
