When the sun goes down, the shutter button does, too

If you go to Key West FL, watching the sunset at Mallory Square is required by law; anyone failing to do so goes straight to jail. I didn't want that to happen, so I watched the sunset like all the other tourists. Of course I had my two cameras handy.

Saturday evening (and Monday), the sky was clear. I got photos with vivid orange colors as you see above. (Photos are high resolution, so you can click to enlarge them.)

On Sunday, there were storm clouds. I whipped out my trusty point-and-shoot camera, and used the preset for sunset. Those two things changed the color of the light to blue and purple as in this photo (above).

You can see the storm clouds in this image and the other purple photo below.

If you live in an area of the world where it is cold right now, is it cruel of me to show these shots that I took while (ahem) I was in shorts and a tee shirt?

This last one will make a nice masthead for my blog, ya?
