[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On the way back from my son's swimming practice I saw this gorgeous sunset while the sun was still peaking out from behind the clouds. Sadly, there was no place to stop the car to get a clear shot until the sun had completely disappeared behind them.

I still think this is a nice and peaceful shot with the clouds silhouetted by the sun.

Hello Michael,
A very unusual yet beautiful sky scene. I really like the way the edges of the dark clouds seem to be outlined by the sun's rays. Very nice display!! TFS.
I saw some highlighted clouds similar to these while in Arizona last week, but didn't have a camera with me at the time.
