One of the things I have noticed about sunset photos is how the sky changes during the course of the sunset. Usually it is enough of a change that you would have no clue they were taken on the same day.

When the sky in central Shoreline is a uniform rosy pink, I know that I'm going to get some spectacular sunset photos from contributors in Innis Arden. But I had no warning this time. The only thing unusual about my sky was a big fluffy single white cloud in a blue sky above the overcast sky. 

These photos are interesting for several reasons. The colors are slightly different. Part of it is the sky getting darker. Perhaps the camera makes a difference. In the second photo, the sky looks marbleized. All that is gone by the third photo and it just looks to be an ominous dark blue.

If I didn't know these were sunset photos, what would I think they were? Abstract oils, certainly. Perhaps a lava lake. A Hubble telescope photo from space.
