I saw this beautiful scene driving home from Kirkwood. I just had to pull over and take a shot. Sunsets are particularly hard to photograph. The light is all different colors, so the white-balance setting on your camera can get thrown off, and when a distant subject is, itself, luminescent, (the sky) getting detail in a foreground object is almost impossible. A flash could work if the subject was small enough and close enough (the trees were neither). Fortunately, silhouettes are quite attractive as well.
