I just love this. The color and your choice of a panoramic framing is great. But, I think that the specific moment that you captured this image is the real winner here. There's just enough sun peeking through to prevent overpowering the image and provide all the highlights necessary to compliment the composition. Well done, Carole.
This is a very nice sunset. The colors are such a lovely rich color and the clouds give me the impression of a celestial river. My only complaint is that there isn't a slightly bigger version to enjoy!
