Glory of the Dragonflame by octane2 Glory of the Dragonflame by octane2

As the sun sets, it unleashes these beautiful formations, as sprawling dragonflame across northwestern sky; complimenting the glorious mountainous formations: The Elephant at centre-left and The Lion at centre-right.

Note the subtle reflection of the blazing clouds in the snow towards the peak of Mount Pembroke.

Made in the middle of winter at magical Milford Sound.

A version on a black background is available here for shadow detail.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
8s f/16.0 at 50.0mm iso100

From the mighty hills we speak loud your name, mighty POWER of the Dragonflame.
From the mountains proud and strong we call our dragonlord.

This is just... Gorgeous. I've never seen clouds that shade of red. Like, blood and wine mixed together.

Gotta agree with Phil, nice scene but there's a strong halo on the mountain which is distracting. Also, the water looks a lot brighter than the sky it's meant to be reflecting...

nice view mate! but I think the blending of foreground and sky is a little bit harsh, to me it looks quite weird and unrealistic, the edge or transition is too small.
