[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sunsets are reddish because the sun is not directly overhead and it's rays must cross through much more atmosphere than the midday sun. After having crossed so much air, most of the blue light is scattered out, as well as most of the green. This leaves the red, yellow and orange colors free to paint their pictures of fiery sunsets and hazy moons, but this sunset have a lot of blue, maybe because of the absencens of polution in this part of South Africa not a degree.

Very impress cloud, attractive colour. I think that you should crop abit on bottom of photo to centre on the sky.

Hello Quinten,
I like the lines and the cloud formations are captured with skill!
Good cololurs and fine details, all presented in an appealing composition!

Also having a straight line where the clouds finish is beautiful
Thanks, enrico.
