I think I may have mentioned before, sunset in my place usually isn’t much! But once in a while we get some colours by the end of the day.

Like this image, captured the other day! However the situation lasted for only a few minutes…

This is the view from my living room… Enjoy!

Hello Pablo,
Wow, my last points for the day are for this fabulous capture!! Somehow I don't expect a sunset in Norway to look like this - it is really very special. I love your composition, the POV and the beautiful silhouettes and the colours are really wonderful. Well done!
TFS and have a nice weekend! Ulla

Wow, what a melancholy susnset of crimson. Nice capture.


Hi Pablo
...Happy Spring!
You have a nice view from your living room. I sure love the colours too. The peachy pink against the blue sky is beautiful. The silhouette of the tree creates nice interest and adds nice textures. Your nice simple frame works well.
TFS Janice

Hi Pablo.
Yu managed to catch a nice moment from nature life. Dark shapes of the tree and hills are amazing as a BG for so wonderful colourful sunset sky. Bravo. So artistic work.

You have made the sky look on fire, very nice composition, dramatic and colourful. Well done and TFS regards h

Hi Pablo,
beautiful sunset capture, I like the composition very much!
great colors,

You have an eye for sunsets I think.. You are much more of the classic straight on shot guy with no bells and whistles. You just let nature show off itself without your help other than clicking and posting to share...very nice!

Hello Pablo
What a wonderful sunset scene you show us here :O)
Perefect colors,exposure and composition,Superb shot my friend.

Good Luck

Hello Pablo,
Beautifully colored sunset with lovely silhouettes in the forground an image to be proud of and a site I would love to have out my window. Great job Pablo.

Hello Pablo,

You have lucky that there be clouds in the sky, otherwise.......(-:
Great use of the trees and mountain as beautiful silhouette in this sunset. Very beautiful composition. The difference between the colors are amazing. But that is always at a beautiful sunset. Beautiful photo Pablo. Great job. Greetings and TFS BOB

Hi Pablo,

The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky and a set of shadows to the rest of the photo. The tree in the foreground is like a loneny guard of the sky. It is giving a sensation of tranquillity and relaxation until the next day. Have a nice day.


What amazing color! WOW!
Excellent silhouette effect and astounding colors. :)

i like composition, POV, light, silhouettes, colours and contrast

When I saw the thumbnail I assumed it to be a brush fire of sorts though the title said otherwise.
Man, is this a GREAT piece of photography.

A fine angle of exposure, Pablo.
The hill looms over the sky that looks as if it is on fire.
Tremendous composition with lovely colours.

Taken at almost 8:00 PM, so the days are indeed getting longer for you Pablo. This is great colour seen in this sky, with very nice silhouetting done with the tree.. Good textures seen in the tree and clouds.

Thanks, John

Hi Pablo,
Stunning sunset and awesome colours on the sky. The silhouetted hillock and the tree makes the image stand out and presents a fantastic perspective. You are so lucky to have this view from your living room. Great light management. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hello Pablo,

I can not nice images take out of my living room, to much disturbing elements everywhere.
Nice contrast picture, with pink colours between the branches.
Splendid composition and good presentation.
Thanks for sharing.

Best regards,

Hello Pablo!
Oh but I do like this,the dark silhoetted hillside with its angle adds so much to the pretty colors in the sky! I can't really see sunsets at our house here until later on in the spring :o)

Hello Pablo,
a beautiful evening sky you captured.
Those sunset colors look fabulous.
Very nice silhouettes contrasting the colorful sky.


Hallo Pablo
What a brilliant shot. The sky looks like it is glowing with heat with this spectacular sunset. The colours are warm and vibrant, as if it is burning from the heat of the shining sun. In a way it actually looks quite unpredictable to me. The black silhouette is great, and the different displays of colours from orange, pinks, mauves to blues are striking. Excellent detail in this spectacular shot, that gives the impression of an artist colour palette in the sky. Thanks for sharing, and have an enjoyable day.
Best regards
