Thanks for allowing us one more sunset, Barbarian:-)
A dramatic, neat sunset shot enhanced with nice composition. Maybe cropping off one fifth from the top could simply be handy, replacing extra branches and the blue with more of sunset colours.

I know. I was at the lake, and I had only my Tamron 24mm lens with me. So I took an uncharacteristic shot.

Normally, I'd have a big sun, and glorious gold and red skies. But I like this one. Not that I'd want to use a wide angle all the time. So here's a more barbaric sunset...

Nice colors!! Do you normally use something else for landscapes than a wide angle?

I'm going to buy a lens for landscape in a few days and thinking on 17-40L for my Canon OR maybe the Sigma 12-24. The 36mm I have been using has done pretty well but sometimes not near wide enough.

Yes, I use a telephoto for sunsets. I like a big sun, and the sky full of the reddish light. That's why this one is so unlike my usual captures.

Wide angle lenses have never appealed to me. One of the nice things about DSLRS is that the long lenses are even longer in digital.
