Look at the angle of the light on the clouds to the right. It’s at quite an angle, and yet it’s not yellowing. You know, the yellowing that you see as it gets closer to the golden hour? Not yet – it’s too early. This is 10pm last night. It’s probably two or three hours away from a colorful sunset.
There were great textures though, and the sky was unusually clear. These clouds are probably over the inlet or, at the closest, over the open fields at Elmendorf Air Force base.
Classic for my situation, I noticed them almost too late – I had to pull out my good 80-200 f/2.8 lens & handhold at f/8 (1/250th sec.) to get this. This is fully zoomed out (200mm), so there’s an effective zoom of 300mm.
