i was at a family christmas dinner & saw this happening outside....immediately bailed from the table & grabbed my camera. power lines couldn't be avoided, so i made a little geometric square in the lower right of the composition out of the power pole & horizon line. just a wild, wild sunset. very minimal post-production. 1DmkIII + 50L.
Several years ago I was on a Sea Scout adventure and we had a similar sunset happening. I was rushing to grab my camera out of my bag when one of our leaders stated: "What's the rush. It will last for a long time." But no, sunsets don't last long so moving fast is important to get it at it's grandest. Your rush was well worth it.
