Then I remembered back to last year when the sky was exhibiting some pretty cool colors around sunset. I don't think this was manual mode, but the colors were so pretty by themselves that it really didn't take much work on my part.
Astute and long-time readers of this blog will remember that I had this as my header picture for quite some time because that was back when Blogger went all weird on me and I couldn't change the picture. Well, at least it was pleasant to look at :)
And finally I decided to put up one of my few nighttime attempts at a sky picture. The moon was so bright and there was that cool halo effect around it. Not the clearest picture, but it'll do.
