Wait for the Drama
© Adam Stoltman
Sometimes the most dramatic images of a sunset present themselves well after the sun has gone down. In this instance, the magenta and lavender clouds reflect the faint glow of the receding sun even though it is already well below the horizon. By waiting well past the time that the sun has gone down, I was rewarded with a one of those magical moments where sky, clouds, and the horizon all presented themselves in the most dramatic fashion. Always wait a little longer even if you think there are no more pictures to take. You will be surprised at what unfolds before you.
