    Living in a hilly mixed suburban/rural area, it is hard to find a good place to capture an obstruction-free sunset without driving a ways. As I stepped out of church last night, I thought the sky looked nice, so I snapped off a few HDR shots. They were not as sharp as I would have liked. I'm going to go out again in a few minutes and try again, although there aren't many clouds tonight, only this time I'm taking my tripod and a graduated ND filter. Lens was the Sigma 35-70/2.8-4.

    Much better. Last night was hazy and muggy, and today we had a high pressure area push in behind today's t-storms to clear things up a lot. In a matter of a few minutes this evening, we went from a crystal clear blue sky to the best sunset I have seen in a long time. All three of these are HDR, taken with the Sigma set at 50mm. Enjoy.
