This is absolutely amazing!!
The colours are incredible!
What a superb silhouette as well.
I would have cropped more of the black FG off to put even more emphasis on that stunning sky.
Very good work Tony!

Hi Tony,
What a marvelous sunrise scene in lively, saturated colours my friend, my first thought was "what a lovely sunset" but as they say, "to err is human". Thanks for sharing this fine scene with us.

Hi Tony

Lovely composition with superb colours. Well observed and captured.


Stunning colours Tony, and great silhouettes with just enough detail at the bottom to create balance in the shot. Nice one.

Cielo spettacolare, molto bella la composizione che dà grande spazio a questi magnifici colori messi ancor più in risalto dalle silhouette nere degli alberi. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi Tony!

Was it really this red live? It is wonderful, almost surreal sky, I actually can't even find the best words for it!
In the fg part I would have made a vertical composition to avoid the little light spot on the right and the power lines, while show more of the sky. But than the ratio of sky and land would either go bad or too much black would appear. I know my opinion didn't help too much with ending up in no decision, but I just tried to think it over :)
Anyway the image is wonderful, the sky is unforgetable! TFS!

Best regards,

Yes I know the feeling of winter approaching and can see the words you wrote in the picture you show....I was also thinking about winter but in dread last year. Now I have found that it is a fun season for photographers.....so maybe you have some hope in this sun rise eh? Who knows what tomorrow brings...?

Hi Tony,
such gorgeous colors and excellent cloud formation, the sky really seems to be on fire. Very well composed, nice division of space. The dark silhouette of the trees makes an excellent contrast to the fiery colors.

Hi my friend,another time i wish to be there to see this incredible sky,never seen a spectacle like that,very very impressive,thanks to show us so perfectly,your friend Luciano

Hi Tony

what an amazing sunrise. It is one of my favourite times of day and this picture shows why so very well. Stunning. the clocks change here means that sunrise is a little later in the day, so i get to see them again for a few weeks before they become to early.


Hi tony,

Pffffffffffffff... what a skyfire Tony. Amazing. In Holland we have sometimes beautiful morning or evenings sunsets or rises, but this is a splendid one. It is gold, red, blue and yellow, and we call it a sunrise in NZ (-: Great compo my friend. Have a nice day and TFS BOB

Hello Tony. The southern hemisphere sky just caught fire here. Stunning sunset over the silhouette of the foreground. The cloud looks very low here from your fine capture. Well done and best regards. Jusni

Hi friend Tony,
Wow........absolutely stunning view and magnificent colours on those wooly clouds. It really looks like the sky is on fire and you portray this scene to beautifully. You are a master craftsman and your gallery elaborates it. The silhouetted landscape gives a fine perspective and the drama of this image evolves around that amazing sky. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Such phenomenon of light in the cloudy sky at sunrise or sunset is rare to see, Tony.
You have provided us the opportunity to see it in this finely captured image.
The clouds are a veritable fantasmagoria of colours and contrast beautifully with the dark earth below.
Well done and TFS.

Wow Tony

What a sky! Amazing colours and I love the cloud formations. The sky is set off by the nice land silhouette.



Hi Tony,
This is impressive! Some skies can be so special... I like everything about this picture. We can see every single detail in those clouds and colors are stunning! Well seen and well done! Thanks,

Hola Tony, tienes que disculparme ya que solo te visito cuando me votas jajaja. La verdad es que ahora tengo poco tiempo por el trabajo.
La luz en tu toma es impresionante y has logrado plasmar bien la belleza y grandiosidad de ese momento.
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi

And fire it is!
Dramatic sky mf - This is HOT, HOT, HOT!! :)
Have a nice weekend Tony,

Hallo Tony
What a brilliant shot. The sky looks like it is glowing with heat. At first I thought it was a sunset because the colours are so warm and vibrant, as if it was burning from the heat of the shining sun. In a way it actually looks quite scary to me. The black silhouette is great, and the gradient of colour from yellows to reds is beautiful. Excellent detail in this dramatic shot, that gives the impression of fireworks in the sky. Thanks for sharing, and have an enjoyable day.
Best regards

This,is not your shot...Your shots are tranquil, peaceful, serene...This is a riot!Personally speaking, I love all your other shots,I do not know whether I love this one, or hate it...

Hi my dear friend Tony,
Splendid landscape shot of a sunrise with excellent details, nice colours and lighting!

Automn is announced in a fiery way, isn't it? Beautiful fantastic great colours! What a sky and yes, I can feel fall inthis. How strange to live on the same earth without realizing all those changes in weather, in a great rythm? With Internet and TN, I really enjoy to follow this rythm accross continents. Thank you!

Hi Tony.
You managed to reflect an amazing state of nature and you have done it greatly. Amazing light and color tone reproduction. DOF and sharpness of the scene are terrific despite the specific objects (I mean clouds, first of all). Farming is perfect too. Bravo.

Hello Tony,
Splendid landscape shot! TFS. Regards,

Hi Tony,
It´s a wonderful sky "on fire", very well captured in the right moment. I love this kind of landscapes or "skyscapes"

Revisando tus fotos he visto esta que me ha dejado asombrado. Para estas fotos hace falta un cielo espectacular y un observador con una cámara que sepa captarlo es ese momento.
