Sue is there any post production color changes/effects on this or is all natural?

Just an amazing bit of photography! Do you have it in a larger scale? That is something that would make a great background image for a computer.

We saw it from Fort Myers beach from the balcony of our hotel. We watched it rise above the palms. Pics are on the camera. Will post when I get a chance.

You're a great photographer Sue --- Why don't you and Rick consider coming down to the Tampa reunion in May?

You can get some really great photo's of an Orange & Blue sunset on the Gulf Coast!!!

Thanks, there are no color changes or special effects. I cropped it so there is a little less sky and I took a couple small white spots off the blue sky that came from lens flare from lights below. My husband uses it for his computer wallpaper. I work for the state and putting personal stuff like that on my computer is more hassle than it's worth.

That would be fun, but it's a long way from Michigan!
