Skywatch: Sunset and clouds

dscf8067-11
I loved the way this photo turned out, especially considering that it was shot from a moving car on the freeway. The sun was slowly setting and was halfway down through the clouds. I like the way the clouds are partially lit up and you can see the sun’s rays at the top of the photo.

    I love drive-by photos. And that one is incredible! Beautiful picture. I’ve enjoyed looking through your blog. What a beautiful, interesting country. Thanks for sharing.

    like this one…the color range amazing with the golds, creams and whites.
    very nice.
    enjoyed.
    i didn’t realize you are not allowed to drive. that must be quite different for an independent woman such as yourself.

    wow this is full of colour.

  9. Hi GeoGypsy – You probably don’t realize it, but women aren’t allowed to drive here in Saudi Arabia!!!

    To Everybody Who Commented – Thanks so much for stopping by! Glad you liked it!

  10. Hi Sonia – My camera is a Fuji FinePix S5700 (7.1 mp). For every photo taken from a moving car that turns out okay, there are about 20 that don’t! You have to follow your subject with the camera and snap. Thank goodness for digital! It’s not too good with night time images, but overall, I am happy with it. I’d really like an SLR – I’m saving for one.

  18. Geogypsy says:

    Susie, that’s breathtaking, all that gold.
    Not bad from a moving vehicle. Hope you weren’t driving.

    The sun peeking out below and the rays at the top are awesome! And, the golden colors, WOW!

  21. Suzanne M says:

    Lovely colours in your photo Susie, hope you have a good week and Happy SWF.

    Very unusual sky. Great capture especially from a moving car. I really like how the buildings are silhouetted.

  23. Louise says:

    I LOOOOVE the color. The clouds are like a curtain. Very nice.

  24. Sonia says:

    I am curious, what is your camera brand and model? Pictures that you take from a moving car are absolutely stunning! Particularly this one. I use Canon, some come out good, but most are a bit blurry. I had to take some pictures in India from a moving car, but they didn’t turn out well.
