Coastal Sunset 20mm, f/4, 1/45s, ISO 400

While setting up camp last weekend in Port Aransas, TX we saw the most amazing colors in the sky.  I’m usually in mission mode when setting up camp and wouldn’t normally stop for pics, but this was too cool.  Given that we were in an RV park there weren’t a lot of great foreground elements to choose from but I think the palm tree silhouette does the trick in a pinch.

This was shot with daylight white balance and post-processing consisted of noise reduction and bringing the luminance of the blues and oranges down a notch to get the colors looking like the actual sky.  I also dropped the exposure of the lower part of the frame (the campground) about a stop.  This image could use a border to keep it from blending into the background of the page…maybe I’ll update it later.
