A Stunning Sunset

Since moving to Iowa last summer one of my favorite things to photograph has been the sky. It's so open and expressive here, and I love it! This was a memorable sunset that graced the sky with its beauty in November.

This is when I first noticed it and went outside to take some pictures...



When I went back inside this was the lovely view through the windows.
 A few minutes later the color had deepened from gold to "sunset pink", so out I went again...

 


The sunset was so brilliant that it made this reflection in the window. Wow!
And then purple enters for the finale. It was breathtaking!

I don't think I appreciated Iowa enough when I lived there. I love the pictures! I also think these would be beautiful framed. Janae

Wow, how gorgeous! I'm sure it was even better in person, but your photos are beautifully composed. I especially like the surreal feel of the sunset windows.
