These were beautiful skies on March 15th and thankfully my husband woke me up from a dead sleep to capture them! I hit the floor running, as I threw on my clothes, grabbed my camera and tripod, put on my socks and shoes, flew out the door, climbed down the hill and proceeded to set up my tripod on uneven terrain. Whew....I was out of breath! The only regret is that I don't think I was fully awake yet, so I forgot to change my aperture. I changed everything else, but unfortunately it was on f/5.6, therefore the trees and branches in the foreground are not sharp. If I would have changed the aperture to somewhere between f/11 and f/22 like I normally do, everything in the picture would have been sharp and in focus. Oh well.....lesson learned! Hopefully next time I will be fully awake and have my thinking cap on. LOL
This was my first shot and as you can see....the horizon isn't quite level. My tripod wasn't cooperating with me or the uneven ground!
The colors in the sky were simply gorgeous!
