Taken in July 2009, in Pacifica, CA. It had been an all-day-long high-contrast black-and-white shooting excursion, but minutes before we left I switched back to color for just two or three shots. The atmospheric conditions created a warm and ethereal yellow-and-indigo combination that I don't usually associate with sunsets, and I love how the clouds are sleeping on the horizon instead of hanging in the sky. As usual though, wishing I could do away with some of the graininess.

The graininess almost gives it a feel of an aged photograph. The colors are nice too. Nice picture!

I think its funny you'd like to do away with the graininess and that's one of my favorite things about it! Beautiful shot.

An interesting capture and nice perspective in the photo. The graininess in the clouds could be toned down a bit.

Think about the photo before and after, never during. The secret is to take your time. You mustn't go too fast. The subject must forget about you. Then, however, you must be very quick. Henri Cartier-Bresson
