Sunset Color Palette

Sunset Color Palette, originally uploaded by big_pixel_pusher.

I had just served myself some dinner and was walking into the living room with an idea of watching a DVD while I ate. When I looked out my front window I saw this amazing scene. It was raining fairly hard but the light and the reflections on the street were too beautiful to pass up. I ran back to my bedroom to get a camera, tripod and umbrella. By the time I got the tripod setup, mounting plate attached to the camera and umbrella ready to open I looked back out the window and the sky had turned a pinkish orange. I knew I had to get the shot quickly and in fact 5 minutes later, the sun had set and all color in the sky was gone.

I wish I had collapsed the tripod so the camera was 5" above street level. I have always found that a low angle view adds interest and reflections are enhanced. Next time.
