Warm Winter Day Sunset

Temperatures have hit highs in the 60s the last couple of days and today was quite nice as well, clear skies and warm temperatures as the northeast portion of the country goes through snow storms.

Again it was Scarlett that I rode out to the nearest usual spot for sunset pictures.  It's a parking lot of a church which has somewhat unobstructed views of the mountains to the west and southwest.

 Shot while the sun was still above the distant mountain peaks, 
above shot in Auto mode, below in Sunset Scene mode.

 Backlit HDR mode cut in on the above shot once the sun
was behind the mountain peaks.


ISO-200, backlit HDR mode

The colors turned their reddest just before the light faded away, leaving only a vaguely yellow glow in the sky as I rode home in the gathering darkness.

Beautiful. #2 is my favorite. I beginning to think a lot of us are skipping winter this year.

Thank you for your comments, RichardM and Bluekat....

really mild winter so far....a bit of snow forecasted for the weekend but less than one inch. :(

You need to submit one or two of those photos to some motorcycle calendars. The International Motorcycle Show's calendar is made of submitted photos. Your are great.

Another one for your Ural calendar. Beautiful colours!

Thank you SonjaM, it turned out pretty good.
