"Swim with the clouds to find me." - Debasish Mridha
These altocumulus clouds painted the sky red after the sun had set. The angle of the sunlight managed to create the striking colors underlit by the sky. Overall this particular day was varied in its' weather. A bright and sunny blue sky day gave way to several clouds with sunshowers. This kept up for a couple hours before a double rainbow formed over the horizon. Keeping in tradition with these weather patterns, the sunset was intense and brimming with light. I acted fast to make this capture as the red light faded away in minutes from this scene.
These "Cloudscapes" are fun to try out as an afterthought. Certain types of images I do when I have extra time, the same with creative blurs. In this case, I had no real sunset shot planned from my position. I was at the local pond practicing ducks in flight, not really fixated on any landscapes. However I had a small telephoto with me so made this quick image at about the 75mm zoom range. A polarizer filter helped saturate the colors a bit and I later upped the reds in post processing. These are neat to do and I'll no doubt make more in the future.
