Key West Sunset
It seems that all I've been posting recently are sunrise and sunset photos, but I particularly like this one, thanks to the dramatic clouds and God beams. Taken from Mallory Square in Key West, FL.

Hi Roger,

Well....I learned something new as never knew these were called God Beams.   Very appropriate and you really captured a strong set of these beams very well.  Great clouds accenting the golden colors of the beams and I think your exposure is spot-on.   Let the sun shine in!

I've heard these called "Jacob's Ladder" for the same reason (I assume) that others use Roger's term.

It's an absolutely gorgeous phenomenon captured so well here, and from such an exotic location that I still long to visit. Terrific, Roger!

Nice sun beams you got there and with a little colour peeping through the clouds.


Next time take a beer and a partner

Very nice exposure Roger. Lots to look at. Along those lines, I'd probably crop the bright area at the top of the shot being that it pulls the attention away from the more interesting golden area at the horizon.

I agree with Bob about cropping off the bright area across the top. Otherwise exceptional!
