This is a one second exposure taken along the shore in East Wenatchee. Many layers of thin clouds have made the sunsets pretty spectacular. I try to go out and find a good location while the sun is still above the horizon...and then I wait. There's a brief period of time when the colors really shine and then it quickly fades to grey black mixture.

However, sometimes if you wait until the sun is well down, you can get some great results with a longer exposure and a higher ISO.

This image was taken at the Relay for Life in East Wenatchee at about 10:15. With the longer exposure I still get light from the West and some stars shining through even with the city lights and clouds.

This shot was taken from Horse Lake road. Sunsets and sunrises are quirky shots. Sometimes it looks as if you have all the ingredients for a dazzling shot and it quickly fades or doesn't appear at all. But every once in a while...it works! Always use a tripod to shoot dawn and dusk shots!
