The clouds photographed in this image are cirrus at the top, with altostratus as well mixed with the Calwood fire plume, and possible pyrocumulus clouds.

    I love the post processing in this image. You were able to bring out more of that orange coloration while also making the shadows within the clouds stand out.

    Wow this almost looks like a volcano. Capturing the smoke at sunset was beautiful.

    I love the colors in this image. They are gorgeous in the original image but they look even more spectacular in your post-processing. I also love the detail in the lower rolling part of the pyrocumulus cloud.
