On our first night at Joshua Tree National Park, in California, the clouds looked like they had a lot of potential, and so Ray and I went to one of our favourite locations from last year’s visit, Jumbo Rocks, where we were welcomed by the most glorious sunset.
Standing on the rocks that night as the sky turned from blue to pink to red to purple was truly magical.

Of course I have a zillion photos of the sunset that night, some with more colours than this one, but I chose this one as my favourite because of the silhouette of the two people standing on top of the rocks in the distance. Those two people give scale to the image and help the viewer imagine themselves there.
On the drive home, I was thinking about all the sunsets I’ve seen, and I think this one might just be the best sunset EVER!!
I made this image with my Sony NEX6 and the 55-210mm lens at 180mm, ISO 200, f/8, 1/100 second.
