Sunset in the Parking Lot

Tonight I was out running errands with my wife, and when we emerged from the grocery store we were greeted by one of the most stunning sunsets I have ever seen.

A line of clouds stretched across the sky near the horizon, and the Sun had just behind it’s front. This caused the sunlight to appear as though it were bursting up through the cloud bank in stunning rays of brilliant orange.

My first thought was, “I can’t believe I’m missing this!” Then I remembered my iPhone could note shoot raw photos in Lightroom Mobile. So I found a spot in the parking lot where I could see the majority of the spectacle unfolding in the sky, and captured some pictures. When I got home I developed the shot in Lightroom Mobile, and achieved a stunning result.

This will not replace my DSLR in the slightest, but at least I know I can capture worthy shots on the phone in a pinch.
