Stunning sunset, the clouds are what makes this sunset picture so unique. Love the formations, colors and tones. Outstanding image.

Good morning, Ryan :-) What time is it at your place now ?

It`s a dream sunset, I like the curves of the clouds and the deep orange, ....

A gorgeous sky with those swirling clouds and the smoke enriched color. We have a fire season in the later fall that transforms even a simple sunset into a genuine show.

This is an extra nice image under any circumstance!

Un super ciel, avec des nuages que nous comparons aux queues des chevaux.
