A touch of Pink

The most amazing clouds were about at sunset this evening when I got off the train, but alas, the train station has no good vantage spots for photography that don't have light posts or electricity lines in them.

Thus I had to wait until I got to Cedar Creek Rd before there was a clear, unobstructed view and by then the interesting clouds had mostly gone, so all you get is this silhouetted tree and a touch of pink.

See where this picture was taken.

    It's not bad Kev - definitely not what I wanted, but then I was in the wrong place at the right time.

    Well the silhouetted trees are nice and they added contrast to your nice pink and blue sky!

    Gave me quite a shock at first here, Dave - I thought you'd got up early for sunrise ;-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Just a pale echo of the beauty I saw but could not catch Heidi.

    There looked to be some good clouds out this evening too, but I missed the 5:14 train and thus was on the train when the clouds were at their best.

    I like it, even if you were in the right place at the wrong time - or was that the wrong place - right time.....
  • David de Groot said:
    Both I think Helen :)

    Hey David this is a lovely sunset, particularly with the trees against the sky, a nice 'soft' sunset! I personally think it was worth missing the train for, but then again, that's easy for me to say! LOL :-))

    Thanks Tracey - this was the previous day (the day I managed to catch the train, and let me tell you, it put up quite a fight, but that's another story) ;-)
