Sunset over the Pocono Mountains

Driving home in the Pocono Mountains, out here in North East Pennsylvania, I had to pull over to grab some shots of this gorgeous sunset. The sky was on fire, lit up with amazing reds, purples and yellows.

I had my Sony A7Riv and Tamron 28-75mm in the car with a tripod, so set up quickly and grabbed the images below. The first sunset is an HDR merge of three brackets (+/-2, 0 EV) and worked lightly in On1 Photo RAW 2020.

This next shot is a panorama of seven images stitched and developed using On1 as well. The colors really blew my mind!
