Sunset and dark rays

And these are three sunsets I took tonight. I was about to put some pasta on when I saw a very rich golden light outside and went up and took a photo. A few minutes later, the sunset was more intense and I rushed back up and took two more.


I rather like this one. The sky is very atmospheric. The bit sticking up on the skyline right of centre is the Sky Tower.


For some reason it got brighter--because the sun wasn't obscured by clouds perhaps? To the left is a what we're calling a dark glory: dark rays caused by clouds blocking the sun.

Now I know someone took a much better picture of this effect. I'm pretty sure it was entropy_house. Can you give me the URL of that post?


Zoom in on the dark glory. If someone could tell me what that's really called, I'd appreciate it.

And now I'm off to bed.
