The Blue Flame of Sunset

    Newer Older

    so it snowed a few days ago, and i have been expecting more clouds to form due to evaporation of the melting snow.. from my observation, more clouds means beautiful orange-ish sunsets, and so i was waiting for that yesterday evening...

    when it was orange-ish, there weren't that many clouds, so i waited some more and it slowly turned blue and then this giant cloud formed out of nowhere and it gave this nice reflection of the setting sun...

    the moon showed up and the communication towers' lights lit up... when it looked like the perfect moment, i took this shot...

    p/s: i think the best thing is that the mountain lions didn't see me (i was by myself) last night because the police here recently told us there's been sightings of mountain lions around... and believe me, yesterday i also saw big cat-like footprints on the snow... i kid you not, it was pretty scary..... i could've died yesterday but i thank God i'm still alive today...

      mountain lions? wow..so dangerous. The picture is breathtaking btw. But maybe I am biased since I have a high affinity to blue colored pictures. But still, biased or not, nice capture! Thanks for sharing this with us!

      never see such an intense blue in the sky. it is very beautiful. P.S. You are still in the mountain where mountain lions were spotted? O_O Very scary. Good that you didn't meet one. :)

      yea i'm not sure if i'll do it again next time... it is definitely not advised to do such a thing, but you know, people have done crazier things than that just to get a good shot... :)

      thanks khosey1... i love this one, too... :)

      lol, yea i guess i was lucky not to meet one.. anyway, it really was blue, and because the shutter speed was kinda slow the photo turned out "bluer" than i expected too.. and i added a little bit of vibrance to it during post processing just to make it look better... oh, and thanks for the comment!.. :)
