Fire In The Sky

We were driving home last night from my wife’s family reunion and there was an amazing sky off to our West. Those that have been hanging around the blog know that I love clouds. Something captivating about a gorgeous sky. I’m watching this develop wondering if I’d make it home in time to get a few images. We got home only 20 minutes or so before the sunset so I quickly hopped in the car and headed out.

To my eye, a good landscape shot has 3 key elements of interest – a foreground, mid ground and background. Realizing I only had a few minutes to capture this beautiful sky I was scrambling to find something of interest to shoot. I knew I could do better, but things were changing so fast that I just went with what I had. You can see just how dramatically things changed in these 4 images. All told, these images span a time frame of only about 20 minutes.
