The Fire In The Sky by kkart The Fire In The Sky by kkart
Update-this shot was featured in the "Photography Daily", a daily twitter newspaper about photography [link]

This past Autumn myself, ~Glitch-Chaos and *ImpedOut were able to witness and photograph one of the most amazing sunsets I had ever seen. The forest fires were burning outside of Winter Park, Colorado and the smoke was starting to fill the skies in Rocky Mountain National Park, and knowing what smoke can do for sunsets...I was pretty excited to see what would happen. Then the storm clouds started roll in and I was freaking out. It was stunning with this blinding brightness where the sun was setting combined with a sky that was just on fire. I think if you ask John & Jen, every other word out of my mouth was "epic" and "wow!" lol

I am already looking forward to this coming Autumn, and once again having the time of my life. I hope you all like the shot.

This is definitely something I would paint, if I was any good. Or even knew how to.
Really looks great. It really reminds me of the time I spent in Yellowstone.

Certainly looks like fire in the sky and some of the trees seem to be tipped with some of that fire as well. A good repeat of the color in the sky. ;)

Did you use a tobacco filter on this, or is it all natural?

Beautiful pic! I love how the trees in the foreground are so sharp, as well as the mountains, then how the sky is so soft. It gives a really great effect. Hope I didn't screw up any of the terminology, there ;)

I'm so jealous of your scenery. Alberta has wonderful views, but damn it sometimes I wish for mountains.

It is, it is. I wouldn't be able to live anywhere else, but I tell you after seeing the prairies every day, you crave something more substantial, you know? Some mountains. A waterfall. An f'ing lake would even do it - all this hay, makes a gal crazy.

I don't like the city itself. The scenery is alright I guess. I'd prefer being in Banff or anywhere in B.C though...so gorgeous. Or Jasper!
