The real sky show started just after the sunset. I shot a few pictures still from the kayak and, then, moved to a beach. I shot about 150 pictures in 30 minutes. Unfortunately, I had only my paddling camera, Pentax Optio W10. I was trying all possible compositions, horizontal and vertical formats over the lake and over the mountains.
The above picture shows another option for the placement of a horizon in your frame. I am just not sure if everybody will like it. I wonder whether I would tilt to follow cloud formations when composing with a DSLR camera on a tripod. I know that I would shoot a panorama.
I am still under impression of that sky display. More pictures will be showing up here. I feel very lucky with photo opportunities during my recent evening paddling not so far away from home: Boyd Lake, Beaver Pond in Arapaho Bend Natural Area, or South Platte River (a photo trip report is coming). The South Platte has plenty of water for paddling right now.
