A view of Mount Baker (located in the USA) seen from our area at sunset.
About this photo: Last night I noticed a pinkish glow in the sky, so I went outside to have a look and I saw Mount Baker basking in the last sunlight of the day. The building in the distance caught a bit of the last sunlight as well and the sky was painted in beautiful colours. I just had to get my camera and take a photo of it.

Whoa, that's a cracker of a shot, the light on the mountain peak is spectacular.
Good looking composition, using so much of that brilliant sky works perfectly.
Superb colours, pinks through to mauve and back again, just brilliant.
My best wishes for a great 2010.

Wow you captured an amazing array of colours. I really like the low horizon which gives more emphasis to that sky. Good for you for looking out the window. I did the same this morning as the sun lit up the clouds there was a pink glow to the back yard. Unfortunately by the time I got my camera ready it was gone. C'est la vie.

je hebt de kleuren mooi te pakken. De oplichtende bergtop en flats maken er een geweldige plaat van. Erg mooi.

Hi Ann, What a beautiful shot the contrast created between the last of the suns rays against the dark silouhete of the tree on the right is stunning. My first reaction was to crop it, but it lost its depth. What a beautiful country to live in. Have a great twenty ten.. Rich

The point of view is leading my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The light of the sunset has a good effect on the colors of the sky, of the highrise buildind and the colors of the mountain. The trees in the foreground are helping in the framing of the picture. Have a nice day.

L'endroit est magnifique et ces dégradés de couleurs dans le ciel fabuleux. Je me demande si ces arbres sombres à droite de l'image étaient bien utiles à cette composition magique?

Un moment si beau bien capturer en image qu'on ne peut que contempler en silence, magnifique ce mélange de bleu et rose avec un bel effet de lumière
Une très belle année a vous aussi

jolie et imposante montagne en point de mire sur cette photo. Les teintes sont très douces et les couleurs attendrissantes, un peu inhabituelles.
Un format vetrtical qui dégage beaucoup de ce joli ciel et aussi un très bon cadrage avec l'arbre qui ferme à droite.
