Trick of the Light

This is my last shot from the mysterious (and wonderful) sunset moments last week as a winter storm approached. I've already shown off with two lucky shots of the colorplay in the southern sky. Here is a different vantage point looking north, toward Pasadena, where the San Gabriel Mountains are shrouded in clouds and the trees along Arroyo Drive look like gold baubles on dark blue velvet. Ah, Nature!

Hi Laurie, I think I got a shot at the same time. Brilliant warm color sunset and at the same time, really interesting wispy edged dark cloud bank in the mountains to the north:

Oh, I think there's more than just luck involved! Gorgeous, Laurie.

Dramatic was the word that came to mind first.
I see that others had the same thought.
I love your description of the colors.

GOOD LORD!! That is just outstanding. I'm listening to an old 71 recording of "Old Man" by Neil Young and I took a look at this. What a nice combination.

I don't know how you do it day after day, no time off, year after year, showcasing our city in new and unseen light. You're a South Pasadena treasure!

Awesome stuff, Laurie.

This is really cool, but you should grab Toto and get in the storm cellar quick.

Beautiful Shot. Enjoy your post from rainy Florence Oregon.

This image is powerful with its exciting colors of electric orange, and blue blending into a luminous corner of cream.

It's a shot that connects me to the photographer's art and sensibility. Thank you.
