Hello All,

This is the shot I took before the sunset was going to take place the clouds were angry and getting ready for a storm to happen, and also due to the strong winds persisting at that time the clouds took a wonderful formation.

Again, this was the scene as seen from the balcony of my living room) :)

I could not resist taking few pictures when I saw such a live show of emerging golden colors behind the dark clouds.

Thank you all for stopping by!

Have a nice weekend.

Hi Paras,
A splendid artist's palette of warm colors! A lovely dramatic sky with all sorts of light emerging from behind these dark clouds. Superb colors and a very neat presentation.
Well done.
Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Paras.

Amazing clouds, it must have been fun watching this one brewing up. The golden tones and your own person skyline has so much appeal. I still like your distance turbines.tfs

stv ;o#)

Love the warm golden colors of those clouds. We've had some beautiful monsoon clouds in Southern Nevada lately. Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,
Amazing dramatic sky with warm colors and light,
a neat details and sharp presentation,
very neat work,,

Hi Paras, what an amazing storm with such fantastic clouds is on its way - and that all in view from your balcony - worth every penny !!!! The golden tones are splendid.
Kindest regards - have a nice Sunday - Monika

Hello Paras, those clouds are very impressive especially backed by the golden yellows of the sun setting.
In this composition I like the inclusion of the silhouetted land, it is so black that it adds to the mood of the shot.
And did you have a storm? Or did it blow over?
Tfs, regards Jean.

Tout un ciel menaçant...quel belle couleur
superbe cette photo

I wish something stronger in FG to compliment the dramatic clouds on there.

An explosion of warm light.
The twilight, the sunset, the dark clouds are colored by the sun.
The "Sky line" and the great scenic effect.
A welcome sharing, and shared emotion.

I am calling this "Layered Sunset". This is a nice and well captured scene, well composed and excellent exposure. With scenes like that for your living room, you do not need to take a vacation. Well done & TFS

Ciao Paras, fascinating composition with amazing sky full of threatening clouds, splendid light and wonderful warm colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

The powerful contrasts made this pop right out of the thumbnail page and continue to work well here

Well seen...
your exposures for silhouette effect is perfect and yet the contrast of colors against the dark clouds in such a mood is very dramatic display ...
and captured!!!

This is a very nice photo.
I noticed from your album if all these photos were taken in the nearby place you are living, then your hometown must be very comfortable to live. Most of the scenery are treasured by us who is living in city with tal buildings around.
