As I mentioned yesterday, Thursday's sunset was absolutely stunning, not only for the short duration of blazing color, but for the amazing display of color change in that short 10 -15 minute display. The image you have for today was taken 55 seconds after the one I shared yesterday. Once again it was shot at a high ISO which gives it some nice texture which I've removed via severe blurring (noise removal technique) for the sky and left in for the water. It isn't often that I've seen Puget Sound painted in pastel pink, in fact, this is the only time in my life I've seen it, so I was a bit fascinated by what I was privileged to observe last evening. Do take a moment to view the images side by side and try to appreciate such a drastic transition in less than a minute. ISO 800; 1/30 sec @ f/ 5.6.
