"WOW", what a surprise this sunset was, and I was so pleased to have captured the rich firery colors of the sky, from our Darlinghurst appartment, overlooking the City of Sydney, N.S.W. Australia.

Just amazing, and so magical, as the sun was slowly setting, the sky was filled with this firery colored rich red and golden glow, against the silhouette of the City of Sydney. I used my new lens Canon EF 35mm f/2.0 to capture this fantastic sky of fire.

The blue sign in the center makes this image a lot cooler, with the dot of contrasting blue right in the center. Beautiful urban sunset.

The sky is nice, but I find the blue square on the tall building a bit distracting.
