Well, one day before the work week and the next February snow storm; so I had better get my last image from the decisive sunset moment from Friday. This is Figure 1 and it shows the tops of four snow covered towering pines illuminated by a golden setting sun. This might be deep in the woods but was, in fact, taken from the small park across from my house. Again I like the drama the color and the dynamic range. I think the composition could be better, somehow adhering to the Golden Rule of Thirds. However, I do like the sense of motion created by the treetops leaning to the left in the picture. All and all I am pretty happy with it and was very happy that my camera was on hand for nature’s fireworks.
