POTD: The Problem With Sunsets

The Problem With Sunsets
Mojave National Preserve, California

It’s not really a problem with sunsets themselves, rather it’s a problem with digital photography. You can see a perfect sunset and create a photograph of it that is extremely true to life, but given Photoshop’s enhancement capabilities, no one will believe you. Be that as it may, this image is as close to the simply lovely sunset colors I saw last Christmas Eve as I could get it. I believe that is the planet Venus in the middle right portion of the photo. I’m not sure though as one reason I had my camera out that evening was because it was possible to see Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn all at the same time.
