More Pictures - Later Post!

OK, as I mentioned in the last post, I would present more of the photos from that special night of last June that started off with the unusual cloud formation. By the time I had driven to my target destination for the night, I could tell that it was going to be a very special night, indeed. Here is a little closer view of the sun rays beneath the clouds.

I believe that I have mentioned this in the past, but, it's worth mentioning again -- it's not always what's happening in front of you that's photo worthy! Sometimes you just have to look behind you. This is sometimes difficult to remember when you are shooting the sunset because your target is obviously right in front of you.

But, with a partially cloudy sky, some of the terrain behind you may be in direct sunlight while other areas are in the shade of the clouds. Depending upon the terrain, that may make for some beautiful photos. So, remember to look behind you!! Make sure to click on the following images to see a larger version so you can see more of the details of the mountains.

As you can see in the first image in tonight's post, the area below the clouds has an interesting orange glow. Zooming in reveals the nice mountain shadows.

After waiting long enough, the sun finally broke through beneath the clouds. By this time, I had repositioned myself, putting some delightful cactus between the sun and me. In the following three shots, I zoom in a little more each time, to change the composition of each picture. Take a close look at the top of the cactus in the last shot below, and the second shot above of looking behind me. The stuff that looks fuzzy on top is the cactus in bloom. Pretty cool.

If you have been following some of my earlier posts, you can tell that I was using the Fujifilm camera. This is obvious from the radials that shine out from the bright sun.

That will pretty much cover it for tonight. But, there are sever more special photos to discuss from this same night. So, 'till next time ... God bless!!
