I witnessed the most amazing sunset I have ever seen tonight. The sky looked like it was on fire. I am posting an un-edited photo to show you what I saw and please note that this is not saturated. I didn't even straighten my horizon. I was totally in awe. This was taken tonight at 5:46pm on Honeymoon Island in Florida using a 24-105L IS. Thank you for looking :)

No wonder your horizon wasn't straight, you must have been completely overwhelmed by the spectacle before you.

The nearest I have to that is a pre-dawn shot I took last year through my bedroom window. No pp other than resizing.

What a beautiful shot, Ray. Good to see that your photography is not confined to just birds.

I was driving home when I saw this sky and kicked myself for not having my camera with me.. It was really an amazing sky. The last couple days actually have been really nice. Glad you were able to capture it MDoc.
