Sunsets can make great subjects but they can also be a bit cliche as well. It’s nice when you get one that is a bit more unique like this one which has so many different colors in it. More often than not sunsets will be predominantly orange or red or purple but this one featured all of the above when I shot it right from my deck in Whistler last night. I didn’t even have time to grab a tripod as it was such a spontaneous thing to stop eating my dinner and just grab the Canon 5D MK3 and 24-70 f2.8 L II that were sitting next to me. In Lightroom I bumped up the various color channels a touch and brought back the shadows a tiny bit to create that tonal gradient between the far mountains and the closer foothills in the foreground.
