Just Another California Sunset

OK, California sunsets don't all look like this. We'd had a few days of cool weather with nice clouds and clear air. The clouds are the big feature here. Totally cloudless skies are pretty boring at sunset.

 

I had planned to drive up into the hills above Glendale and photograph all of the city with downtown Los Angeles in the background, but I was foiled by a series of closed roads. (This is the foothill view I wanted from a previous night shot of mine. Imagine that same view with those vivid sunset clouds!) So, as I drove home with the sun quickly setting I had to snap a few shots through the windshield to document this amazing sky.
