Beautiful violet clouds cover the sky at the end of a December day. Now, just before the sunset, the clouds have began to spread and the sun pass through them, in patches. In the distance, near the horizon a red stripe can be observed. It’s the athmosphere filled with gloomy dust particles in the sunset light, a sign that predicts wind in the next day.
The picture was created with a Nikon D40X camera and Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX lens using these settings: exposure time – 1/200 seconds, focal length – 55 mm, ISO – 200, F- number – 4.
