Sunset


A spectacular sunset tonight, seen across the fields at the edge of town. Radiating out from the spot behind the horizon trees where the sun went down were bars of light, a yellow one leaping straight up and red ones - which the camera didn't catch - fanning out at the sides.

That is beautiful. What kind of camera did you use to take that photo?

Thank you both! I use a Canon PowerShot. Perhaps a longer exposure would have shown more of the effect. I am somewhat mystified as to why the red rays do not appear in the photograph.
