Brilliant sunset skies over Auckland city. This photo was taken from my house at Gulf Harbour on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula which is around 20kms as the crow flies from the city.

Fiery Skies indeed !! and to get that - you had to sacrifice the - dark - clarity of the land mass at the bottom of the photograph. Yet, the whole effect of the picture has come off well. It does convey the fiery-ness of the sky. The colours have come of brilliantly. Thanks for sharing.

Just checked your gallery and assume this is the pic you referred to. The similarities are obvious and you're right about the compromises that have to be made in getting a shot of this type. In this case, the city vista 'anchors' the overall image and the subtle shading transitionsof the sky above. The sense of scale is impressive.
