There. That’s better. The week’s dreary, grey, lifeless sunsets were disappointing this week, but on this night, the clouds and the sun worked together to give a good backdrop to the landscape.
I was on the hilltop overlooking I-94 to shoot traffic and the bridge for one of my contracts, but the imagery of the cityscape took precedence. I was surprised how the camera picked up the blue of the galvanized chain link fence. The Interstate is blue, the bridge, and support structures are blue. They add a chill to the contrast of the warm sunset. The river provides a good dividing line with its soft peach tones.
If you look closely to the north (right) you can make out the lights just starting to glow at North Dakota’s only oil refinery.
All in all, a good moment to capture forever.
Have you noticed how colors change, such as the galvanized fence, when the sun is filtered through the cloudsd?
