I took this shot from my hotel balcony. I was sitting listening to bird song in the warm evening air drinking a glass of almond wine whilst watching the sun set :)

Hi Karan, wonderful capture. I like the layering effect of the color. For these shots I was told to aim for 1/5 silhouette-to-sky ratio. I thought it was a good point. TFS.

When I opened the gallery my photo and yours were next to each other, both sunsets with very much the same colours. This is really stunning, the clouds looks like flames shooting into a purple sky.

Hi Kanran, Superb colourful sky, well seen, a very peacefull view. Magnificent capture. Hope you had a lovely stay in Italy!

Great scene, Karan.
I like this image: the shape of the clowds, the color in it and the mountains at the horizon. Good seen.

Keeping up with the jolly-pics, what wonderful colours! You should have taken that balcony home with you! Together with sunset, birdsong and almond wine!

Lucky you! Great capture, stunning sky and great silhouette. Those cloud formations are something else! :-) lesley

Hi karan,
This one is actaully even nicer then the one posted on TN. Not that I don't like that one, but the horizontal composition and the shapes of the clouds are more wonderful. The intensity of the sun hitting the clouds is simply awesome. The simplicity of the composition is much to my liking. It looks like you got yourself a great second camera.

Hello Karan,
which sunset with the intense colors. The extremes of colours marry with wonder. But that became your sunrise, I had only time to see it. What has pity, He is so beautiful also.
Heartily, Corinne

Hi karan!
Congrats for your very special third eye to sky landscapes!
It's excellent!
