Last sunset of 2010.
Cliché or not, that's how the sky looked yesterday at dusk. ( with a zoom extract).
2010 was a drought-year here in Israel, with only 21 (!!) rainy days , and yesterday light-rain included in the count.
Hope is for a better rainfall in 2011 .
Happy New Year.

What a dramatic sky you show us today..!
This is a difficult exposure with great variation in the light and you manage very well here, maintaining good details in the clouds...
Thank you for the pleasant relation during the year soon ending, and I wish you a happy and prosperous new year 2011..!

ben dosata la luce di questo tramonto con le nuvole dalla colorazione e dalla forma diversa.
Un augurio di un felice 2011 a te e famiglia amico mio,

dramatično nebo, ki ne obeta nič dobrega (za nas, ki imamo dovolj deja). za vas pa je mogoče to reitev. povsod po svetu primankuje vode, ki je zelo pomembna.
vse najlepe in najbolje v novem letu, vojko

A good way to finish the year a sunset view. The point of view is showing the deatils and colors of the sky. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.

These fantastic sky, colors, lights and shapes are amazing. Very apocalyptic picture.
ערב טוב. אלה פנטסטי, שמיים צבעים, אורות וצורות מדהימות. מאוד תמונה אפוקליפטית. דרישת שלום.

Spectacular sunset that caught the last day of the year, a nice contrast between those golden tones, some red, and those dark clouds, a very beautiful picture and a very nice image to say goodbye to the year.
We begin the new year and wish you well.

orange lighted cloud and dark shadow side of cloud are dramatically composed,
it looks really suggestive to the light and shadow of the world,
the global warming is actually changing the world weather to bad condition, it is dreadful indeed,
anyway, an impressive shot of your last 2010,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Amazing sunset, amazing clouds, wonderful sky. Mysterious shadow. Fine light and bright.
Good cut. Very good contrast. Original frame. Splendid effect.
delpeoples (52145) 2011-01-02 3:48
Happy New Year to you and your family. I hope it brings you evreything you wish for. I don't find this shot cliched at all. The light play and exposition are superb. It is very difficult to shoot only the sky, sun and clouds. You've made an interesting composition out of these 3 elements. The tones are amazing and the clouds add that special touch of drama. Congratulations and I wish you a beautiful day.
jmdias (51827) 2011-01-12 5:55
nice view. I liked the work of the light and the shapes of these clouds. a beautiful sample of beauty of nature.
yes, it is very sad only 21 days of rain. here we have around 9 days with rains since the begining of the year, I guess only 2 or 3 days we didn't have rains this year.

Thanks for your visit Ike
Clouds performing in the final act of this drama before the curtain falls pull out all the stops for a spectacular poster!

Really stormy clouds. It seems a very dynamic pic. Nice subtle orange tones.
Noel_Byrne (19911) 2013-01-13 9:38
What a way to see out the old, and welcome the new. That sky is superb, dark and threatening, yet beautiful and holding stunning light at the same time. I particularly like the warm, almost volcanic light in the lowre left of the image.
All the best
