I have not been doing much shooting, last weekend went to Los Angeles, this Sunday on my way back to San Jose, almost Sunset time and few miles on 152 between Hwy 5 and Hwy 101, I saw Sky was on Fire. Stoped the car and snaped few shots. Minor contrast adjustment in PP. Enjoy

Indeed, sky looks on fire and you must have informed fire brigade in time I hope, Vic :)

Love the harmony of colors and perfect focus you have achieved in this beautiful hence artistic work.
The sharpness and POV are well done, and exposure is brilliant.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Vic,
An artist's palette with such splendid colors that Nature offers! A splendid sky with a glorious cloud pattern which really seems on fire.
A sharp image and a lovely capture to share.
My best regards,

Hello Vic,

It feels like the wind is coming directely from the hell haha (I'm just kidding). The golden orange tone on the clouds near twilight zone is looking fantastic. Presence of a silhouettes of the ridge and dark outline of vagetation are charming. An impressive catch my friend. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Hi Vic,

Very nice capture and splendid saturation of colors and light,
Nicely done.
