This photo was taken on a day that had been totally overcast until about 4:00pm. The clouds began to break in the west and the sun shown through as it went down. So I grabbed my camera and...
At about 4:15 this is what it looked like. A few minutes later the sun was again hidden by clouds but I'd got my shot!

Yes, you have to be quick with these sky-shots, especially if there are clouds involved. Great photo.
Please visit my blog as I have a well-deserved award for you!!
Patience is rewarded. Beautiful.
Beautiful! Sometimes you just have to drop everything and shoot. ;)
Your photos are breathtaking. Excellent posts.
And it's a sunset in the cold, I could already see that when I saw the top of the photo and not yet the snow. Strange, that's knowledge that is in our head but if asked to define a winter sunset that would be hard.
Very cheerful sky.
And a lovely photo it is! Thanks for sharing.
Good thing you're so quick on the draw! Thanks for a real (and literal) bright spot in a dreary winter day!
Great shot! happy swf.
I can't get enough of seeing sunsets! And yours is great as always. Thanks for your visit.
Whoa, nice scenery up there! How much snow do you have now???

Beautiful capture! I'm so glad you were standing by! Awesome... except for the whole snow thing. You're welcome to come partake in this warmth. lol
Sometimes those cloudyish days produce great skies. You are so patient to wait for the great shot. Nicely achieved.
Lovely catch for Skywatch!!! Happy weekend! Mine's up too hope you can visit....
Absolutely breathtaking! Beautiful colors! Thank you so much for sharing. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
It really is amazing how little light there is right now. When it breaks through you gotta' be ready! Love that sunset. Only two more days and we turn around towards the light!
I little but wonderful sliver of colour in a gray world of winter.
Beautiful sunset shot. Being in the right spot at the right moment is often the key to a good photo.
I like your choice of foreground. It adds extra interest to the beautiful sky.
And you took a great shot.
Very beautiful colored sky. Happy weekend and SkyWatch from Norway :o)
Gorgeous sun! I sure wish we would see some here!
Wonderful shot, as always. Thanks for sharing.

I love it when the sun slip out under the clouds as it is going down. Sometimes it is the only sun you get to see. Nice shot.
After 15 hours of no elec. I was going through computer withdrawal. LOL MB
What a great shot! I love that tangerine colour.

You nailed it. Cracking capture. Wish we had a sun like that this week. Been very grey and overcast on the IOM. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful! The sunset this time of year is such a JOY after having a dull grey sky all day long! When the sky lights up like your photo it takes my breath away!

Hope you are not still seeing black spots from looking straight int the sun! Magnificent shot though.
Beautiful - love the colors and the warmth, even though there's snow on the ground. Great contrast!!
