Those are really nice. Beautiful colors. If he runs that middle one through layers in Photoshop he may be able to brighten the exposure on the church while leaving the sky as it is.

Wow! Are you blessed to have that skyline, no matter what the weather.

Nathan got up might early on this beautiful Lord’s Day. A most blessed way to prepare one’s hearts for worship.

At sunrise, sunlight takes a much longer path through the atmosphere than during the middle part of the day. More violet and blue light is scattered out of the beam along the way, and so the light which reaches the eye early in the day is reddened. The muted tones are caused by pollution/particles in the air. Awesome colors are formed when higher clouds are hit by the sun's rays before they pass through the lower atmosphere, where the air has more particles. So the bright reds and oranges are filtered through at the high cloud's level.

Light and our atomsphere amazes me. It is also to think that the act being amazed by this has been consistant throughout history, that we are looking at the same sky and amazing light effects (to an extent) that everyone over the course of human history has.
