Picture o' the day

Fresh when it gets here from Julie Barrett

This isn't quite what I had planned, but here ya go. We had clouds building on the horizon this evening, but I was out at the high school for open house. This meant I just had my little Casio with me. I played with the saturation and color balance, and this is pretty close to what I saw. Only the deep pinks were more spectacular. I couldn't bring them out without also bringing out a lot of noise. There is still way too much noise for my taste, but at least it's a sunset. Even better, we got a bit of a cooling breeze that carried the smell of rain along with it.

Sorry to say that this isn't a Karen sunset. Perhaps I'll manage something as spectacular as hers sometime. Don't hold your breath.
