      Very nice, Michael. I like the soft colors. Here in NY we had some intense colors yesterday. At some point, one would think lava was pouring from the sky. (I did not adjust colors, they are quite close to what the eye could see.)

      What a grand finale we had to Sunrise/Sunset II with fantastic colors from Michael, George and Hans. Still feeling the warmth of those spectacular images. Now Michael has launched us again with no less a splash of color and awe.

      George, I love these hot copper colors you’ve captured! And Hans’s cool waves of Asperitas follow just in time! The mention of lava sent me spelunking for this one.

      Beautiful captures of days’ beginnings and endings, Hans and Michael! The colors can be so rich sometimes. And then there are occasions when an extra breath of quiet observation offers hints of a subtlety that may come alive with just a nudge of contrast in the processing. Late in the afternoon, the sky held such promise.

      This Subtle Beauty is a true impressionistic beauty Keelin thanks to your perspective observations. You certainly have an eye for it. I love these vague upward waving structures behind the contrasting thicket.

      Less subtle in its contrast …

      Love those Lennies, Hans, and the soft color palette of In Between is very soothing – perfect for restoring balance after a complicated day.

      Michael, there is something so intriguing about Arizona Sunset #86, as if it has a story to tell that it’s only hinting at. Those subtle waves above the petit cloud keep tugging my eyes and up and up. A most interesting effect to feel from an image that in itself is not moving.

        Nice clouds, Ariana. I guess many have a similar shot – mine is pre-digital so essentially lost.

        It is worrying that the USGS are predicting the Hayward Fault could produce an earthquake soon. I note the USGS office in CA is nearer San Diego!

        I’m sure many have a similar shot and doubtless many of those are far better than what I captured. Attracting photographers of all skill levels is the “price” we pay to live somewhere so gorgeous and iconic :)

        Luckily there are a few seismology labs in the Bay Area that track the daily quakes and are working hard to find ways to predict when the next big one one will hit. I try not to worry about it too much, though. We all live with the daily awareness that it can (and will) happen at any time. The best we can do is have an earthquake kit, an evac plan/meeting place, and tell our people we love them each morning when we leave and each night before bed.

      What a gorgeous photo, Ariana! The headlands above the bay, where I imagine you were positioned to take this shot, are always chilly and quite windy. Your timing and willingness to endure the elements are appreciated! Hope to see more from you here on the forums.

      And Hans, your three most recent images are simply stunning. I cannot choose a favorite, for each one evokes a different emotion, while all inspire a splendid sense of awe.

      The photo below is from the same sunrise moments as The Next Morning (a few posts above), taken a couple of years ago in Ketchikan Harbor, Alaska.

      The Same Morning might be not the same as the Next Morning (qué???…) but they are both very nice and gentle colorful wide views of a beautiful Canadian sunset, Keelin.

      And what a great view with sunset over the Golden Gate bridge, Ariana. Warm colors although it might have been chilly where you took the picture as Keelin wrote.

      Thank you, Keelin and Hans! As a newbie to CAS and it’s forums, I so enjoy everyone’s gorgeous images and kind words to each other. I volunteer out in the headlands and I’m blessed to see this view in all it’s ever-changing beauty each week. And as an “office dweller” day-to-day, I crave the winds and wilds of the coastline and the precious moments I get to spend just standing and breathing.

      George, Just after sunset is a lovely shot — the tower perfectly centered ‘neath that heavy, luscious blanket of deep purple with warm, rosy highlights in between. I feel settled and content to rest in place by this image you’ve shared with us.

      And Hans, what an incredible photo with those bright/dark striations balancing the hot focal point of setting sun. Those silhouetted island clouds seem to beckon, hinting at distant isles — an invitation to dreamland?

      Very nice shots, Hans, Keelin, Michael. I particularly like the cloud striations and the gradual change in the color of the sun in Hans’ “Just before hiding behind the horizon”.

      We had a big storm in NY last week, it swept the whole NE of the country. There were even a few F0 tornadoes, though not in the City. But it went by fast and behind the storm the sky was awesome. Hard to capture, but here a try.

      Well these pastels are very gentle Keelin. When you wish differently, I know you use a rather wide angle and then it is not always easy to cut out the colorful or distant parts. One way or the other, it is the composition that makes the picture.

      No Doubt you were in a magical place, Hans. I love how the colors intensify as each moment passes at day’s end. In your image above, I especially like how the tree on the right appears to be painting in a bit of its own dark hue to the approaching night scene.

      Yes a magical place Keelin, but also a magical moment. There is this short span of time at the end (or beginning) of the day that the magic appears and gradually disappears. It is called the golden hour, but I think its shorter.

      Funny, I did not notice the finger-painting tree yet.

      Hygge, you are quite right not to buy kitsch although I tried to sell it that way. And thanks for compliments. Sometimes nature shows colors that seem to be unreal. This picture I enhanced a bit, but be sure that the colors shown were all there in reality.

      Michael. I don’t know what you did to produce your “garish”. Very funny in the first place. And a real surreal (…?….)  abstract for sure! I am wondering about the separate blues on the bottom of the picture. Maybe a distinct shadow in which the reds of the setting sun are not reflected? Intriguing.

      After kitsch and garish this one from my archive seems to be applicable (be sure: it is like it really was with  just a bit extra contrast where it may be not needed?).

      I’m not sure that there is such a thing as a subdued sunset in Arizona. Maybe its the one with no clouds.  Every time  I tried to rein in #88 it died. The blue band i think was the edge of a anti-crepuscular like below.

      And sometimes gold is the color of a sunset, especially on a hazy evening.

      Wow, Don this is such a gentle peachy color you captured. It almost feels warm despite the snowy landscape.

      Michael, Arizona #95 is simply fabulous!. For several reasons, makes me think of “double, double toil and trouble”. – Don

      Don, Ha!  It takes a bit of magic but not witchcraft to catch a unique Arizona Sunset. Monsoon cells offer short lived windows of light  giving color to various parts of  an evening show.  Monsoon atmosphere plays tricks..like a rat without a tail..with the light so you have to be quick and on your toes as the sun sinks below the horizon.

      Indeed Michael. In the golden hour it is sometimes a matter of seconds to capture the right moment, but it is so rewarding when you succeed.

      Beautiful sunsets above! Even in B&W, the imagery delivers a warm sense of joy and contentment at the dimming of the day. In the image below, my eyes relaxed for a few breaths — just long enough to find the tiny lines in the upper part of the cloud layer. And there they lingered.

      PS: This image might need to be viewed at a larger scale to see these subtle lines.

      You are right Keelin. On a larger scale the subtle undulating lines are well visible. Great spotting. Subtle beauty!

        This picture makes me think of the saying “red skies in the morning, a sailor’s warning, red skies at night, a sailor’s delight.” Very nice, Hans!

        Thank you George. I recognized your POtD today on the gallery. Love it. It could have fit well in this topic with its very nice reds (sunset or sunrise?).

        Congrats George! I noticed your red cumulus is cloud of the month December. Well deserved!

        Thank you for letting me know, Hans, I would have missed that. I am thrilled. And thanks to whomever picked it.

        I know that as ‘Red sky at night shepherd’s delight, red sky in the morning shepherd’s warning’.

        P.S.  Still have that ‘you must be logged in to reply’ for some (recent) threads when I can happily reply to other (older) topics. GP-P is working on it but puzzled. I cleared out my cache at his suggestion (Control/Shift/Delete) but to no effect.

      Michael, your Arizona Sunset #97 is like seen from an airplane: cloudlets above a calm see. Love it.

      Beautiful vibrations of colors and textures captured in your AZ Sunset #97, Michael. And a warm beckoning brightness in your image above, Hans.

      Can you believe it’s time to put Volume III to bed already? Here’s the lullaby I caught out the window a couple of days ago while climbing a stairway at the gym. Can’t wait for the next sunrise.
