Virginia sunset

April 19, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I hated the way this tree was sticking into my beautiful horizon, just couldn't make it work.  So I shot a series for a panorama where this tree wouldn't be so prominent.  Alas, the computer I brought with me on this trip had Adobe Bridge deleted by yours truly.  But I had to post this amazing sky.  So wouldn't you know it..  Couldn't I have taken at least one sweet frame of the whole horizon?  I did, but the sun went down enough to not shine directly on the puffy clouds to turn them pink.  So the only frame I finally figured I could make something of a composition from was this one, with the eyesore tree.  It's a forced and contrived composition.  The eye doesn't settle easily at any one point and keeps moving about the picture for a bit, but manages to look fiery and give a sense for the clouds and the sunset's color.  Hope you like it.  I'm not thinking it's such an eyesore right now.
