Default Sunsets

I do not have the opportunity to travel and be in exotic places like some other posters on this Board. So, I take the opportunities I have, ... like one yesterday while out working. The sun was setting, and I stopped long enough two times for some shots. In hindsight, I missed the best opportunity by about two minutes, when the puffs in the sky were bright orange.

Oh well, ... I'm sure there will be other opportunities. Where I live, the sun rises and sets every day, ...

I think the first one was on P mode, and the second one on Scene/Sunset mode.

Very nice - great colours in the second shot. You're right though - there will always be plenty more sunsets to capture

Thanks for the comments from all. Initially I was partial to #2, but after spending more time studying #1, I think I will have to agree with most of the comments.

But, these are pale over against the ones by Marquzz. Much more work to do on my part.
