SkyWatch Friday, Backlighting


Backlit Clouds provided a brilliant hued sunset for this Capture.

There are few things more appealing than a bright blue sky but it becomes much more beautiful when a few clouds combined with low angle sunlight paints a stunning image across the evening sky.
Note: this image was captured with my little Canon S2 IS point&shoot
