[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken in Hanmer Springs, one autumn afternoon. The sun was about to set behind me and its last rays casted an orange tinge on the clouds.

I had my camera set on "cloudy" WB to get warmer colors. I spot metered on the clouds so I would get the right exposure on it.

Very spectacular indeed mate! Hanmer Springs is a picturesque place and lends itself to some fantastic photo opportunities, as you have shown with this.

Excellent composition and wise use of the metering and WB settings to draw the best out of your shot.

Well done

Hello Pierre
Very very beautiful sky and just looks like fire in the sky.
Very vivid colors and dark hills making the colorful sky more prominent!

Very good capture!


Very splendid view of sky. Wonderful colors.

Hi Pierre,
Wonderful photo of this fiery sky over Hanmer Springs. Such a pleasant sight, love the deep colours and the thickness of the long cloud. A simple, yet very effective shot.

Thanks for sharing,

Hi Pierre.

As a love of all sorts of clouds I must say that you made so nice work with this one. Beautiful shapes, colors and strong contras are something I love.

Have a nice day!
