Odd clouds

Stuck in traffic, going from east to west in NYC, I noticed everyone taking a photo of something, as I crept closer, I saw a stunning cloud formation, highlighted by the orange of the setting sun. I quickly fumbled about, opening my camera bag, pulling out my D700, and mounting the Nikkor 24mm F/2.8. (all this while on a red light)

 

Changed settings from A to M, and setting camera settings after a quick meter.

 

First shot as the light turned. Very lucky. I parked the car at the next block, but the sun set already, and it didn't look as vibrant.
