Sunset Series, 5

This is a wider shot photo of the same sunset that I showed in my posts during the last few days. When I zoomed into the horizon, the clouds looked darker than the photo posted today, which shows that the sky above the marine layer of clouds is still slightly blue.

The high clouds offer an opportunity for an epilogue to the sunset, as I will show in the days ahead. The presence of clouds like this add suspense to the sunset, as sometimes the clouds are thick and block the color as the sun drops into the ocean. Most afternoons the clouds allow the sun to drop behind them and the capture the color of the sunset and add texture and extend the duration of the colors.

This week we are showing photos of San Xavier del Bac Mission, the White Dove of the Desert, outside Tucson, Arizona, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

You have to have clouds to get a sunset like this one. Nice series.
