Default a lakeside double sunset

9-18 on the E-M1 @18mm on a tripod. I cropped some sky and foreground to give it a panoramic dimension.

Not sure what the term is but the sun set once at the top of the cloud bank on the horizon and then set a second time when it got below the cloud bank. Although it was not visible when it hit below the cloud bank the red glow was and I did my best to get a shot of this unique sunset.

I don't know what it's called either but that is a nice shot. Good call cropping some of the sky and water.

You did an excellent job on that shot, both in the scene capture and in the cropping. Very impressive and appealing final product.

Some of the best colors in sunsets I never caught happened after the sun set and I started on my way home before I should have.

I can't think of a different name for a double sunset but based on the image above I think "cool" pretty much explaines it. I've known for years there is sometimes an elusive "Green Flash" just above the sun when it sets but I've never been able to photograph one. My hat's off to anyone who catches it. Here's an example from APOD: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140604.html.
