Sunset at Green Cay Wetlands Park

Mar 5, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

HDR taken during sunset at Green Cay Wetlands Park. The colors are so vibrant that you have to wait a few seconds for your eyes to absorb the colors to appriciate the photo. I really thought the sunset that day was gonna suck but I was wrong. As soon as the sun went down over the horizon the colors hit the clouds and lit up the sky. It was simply amazing. Goes to show, you can never tell how the sky will pan out till the end.
