Beautiful Evening - 2

This is in continuation with the previous upload. As the sun went down the sky was transformed in to lovely tone of orange.

 

I was waiting for some bird to fly across which would give me a silhouette against the orange sky. Common Pariah Kite is indeed a very common bird seen near my house and it obliged by flying across the sky. This is what I managed to get. Later on it settled on top of a building.

 

Note: I haven't tanked the saturation at all, this is how the sky was. When nature is at its best you just can't go wrong :)
