Lit up clouds over Hainburg

Sometimes the clouds can be so low, that they can reflect all the light from the ground. Like that, you get clouds that look much warmer than the rest of the sky. Same in this panorama taken from the hill above Hainburg in Austria. The clouds were so low, that when town lights changed their color completely.

I think I mentioned this before, but this one is one of those, unplaned panoramas. I mean, I took the photos as two separate shots, not for a panorama. But, since they were taken close after each other, with similar settings, I could still fit them together. I find I do this quite often. Sometimes it easier to see something when you calmly think about it while editing, instead of being in a hurry in the field when you are losing the light.

This is a two-shot panorama, each shot blended from three exposures in Photoshop. Combined into panorama also in Photoshop. If you want to know how that is done, check the guide here.
