El Paso Sunsets Week — Part 1


Because of the wildfires out here in the west and other conditions, it’s been a great summer for sunsets. So, this week I’ll be sharing some recent sunset and sky photos, including on this week’s Fun Photo Friday a rather impressive shot of the Moon just past 1st quarter phase. The picture above was taken on 15 August. With the exception of the last photo below, all photos were taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ1000, in RAW, handheld, and post processed in SILKYPIX Developer 8 SE before being converted to JPEG and then downsized for posting.
