“Colour Coded Timelines”

I was happy to find this scene at the top of a small hill while driving through the countryside. The land is mostly flat in this area, so I usually frame my photos with a lot of sky, but this time the foreground was interesting enough to give it some more real estate. When shooting fields I often go right up to the fence to shoot over it, but I thought this one was interesting, with it’s rusted wire and weathered wood, nature starting to take over, and of course the bird house, which seemed to be as old as the fence.
The sunset started with a small patch of clouds in the distance catching the yellow light, which turned to orange and then pink as they moved toward me.

Only a few clouds lit up with colour during this sunset. The sun made a brief appearance before moving past the horizon and the clouds on the right that did catch some colour make the two look a bit like a comet with a long tail.
