During our evening walks in the Extremadura summer heat, I enjoyed taking my camera along and capturing the beauty of the sunsets across the huge horizon-to-horizon sky. Here are a few pictures that didn’t make the cut for my previous HDR post.
One of the cool thing about taking an entire fortnight of vacation and spending much of it outside in the evenings for an astronomy enthusiast is that you get to see one complete half of the moon cycle, from new moon to full moon.
This is my favorite photo in this post. With the wide angle, you can see all the colors of the rainbow, from red to purple. And yes, there is a tiny hint of green in there.
Sunsets just aren’t the same without clouds. I suppose cloudless ones are pretty in their own way, though. It reminds me of this photo I took of a beer bottle.
On the night that I knew the moon was full, I spent a lot of time staring at the horizon opposite the sunset, waiting for the Moon to make her appearance. That she came up over this little house was just a bonus.
