Day 206: North Dakota Summer Sunsets

Sunsets can be quite beautiful in ND, and this isn't even harvest yet, when the particles in the air make for even more intense sunsets.

Just some cool clouds as the sunset. I drove to the edge of town, but didn't get there quickly enough and the sun was already rapidly dipping beyond the horizon.

SOOC:

With a vivid action, slightly cropped, and some sharpening:

WOWOWOWOWOW!!!! I love a good sunset--you are sooo lucky to have so much horizon and to be able to SEE your sunsets. Love how the colors pop with the vivid action, and I like the texturing, too; really makes it interesting.
