Almost has the look of solar prominences. Is this a forest or range fire that you grabbed shots of?

Hi Geoffs,

Good assessment of my photo

However, a lil' trompe de oleil (sp?) is going on here

It was shot , handheld (did not have my tripod) of some clouds in the sky at last light of the day.

I underexposed a bit to give a sense of "raining fire from the sky".

Because it was handheld and near dusk, I knew from past experience with my digcam (E20) that there would be quite a bit of noise. I tried to clean up the photo with my PSP7 with only marginal success.

A physics pro could tell you about the prominent wavelengths of visible light that are found at the end of the day that give objects a "warm glow" (like the clouds in the photo), consistent with the "alpen glow" of the mountains.

Probably too much of an explanation but there it is!

You know, digcamfan, I don't think I've been fooled by a photograph as badly as this one fooled me in a long while. My eyes just weren't putting 2 and 2 together last night when I looked at this.

Of course, now that you told me exactly what it is, that's what I see. Duh!

Now I can say that you captured those last moments of daylight in those clouds just wonderfully.

it's ok geoffs....it had me confused too....

i thought it was clouds, but i could see it being a fire in the mountains..the black on the top being the thick smoke, and the blue on the bottom being hazy trees...

great shot digicamfan....i think the noise adds to it...
