I’ve tried this sky in dozens of composites and love it in everyone I try. This particular sunset yielded about 50 spectacular shots, and many were stunningly different depending on the direction and the time of the shot. Good color probably lasted for 45 minutes. I photograph the sky all the time, and try to be observant of every sunset. Great sunsets are unusual, and superb sunsets are rare enough that you don’t want to miss them.
Cliff Dunes seems other worldly, but the landscape is between Goblin Valley and Capitol Reef in Utah. I sometimes wished I live near Moab.
