    We've had a couple days of totally clear, chilly blue sky weather but with a front now approaching saw some thin clouds beginning to materialize late this afternoon. Grabbed some gear and headed for the lake...set up at a spot where I figured the sun would be going down behind a big cove. Got a few keepers...1st shot is just as sun was settling at the horizon, 2nd shot is 15-20 minutes after it had disappeared. Canon FDn 24-35/3.5-L

    Beautiful. I haven't seen a sky that nice around here lately.

    Really just rolling the dice every afternoon...almost impossible to predict 'if and what' clouds may materialize in that magic 15-30 minute window right as the sun disappears

    Yeah, there have been many times I've thought the sunset was going to be special, and went to one of my favorite spots only to end up with ho-hum results.
