Okay so I don't by any means consider this a great photograph. I was sitting outside in my backyard with my dogs because I noticed a lot of shooting stars in the sky last night and I was watching the show.
Once the sun starting coming up the sky looked amazing, it was a yellow/pink/orange and a very vivid purple. I have never seen the sky light up with such a pretty purple before, I knew I needed to capture it. Instead of jumping in my car and battling the early morning traffic, and possibly missing the spot before I got to a destination with a better landscape, I just pulled out my camera and took this shot in my backyard. Yes, my backyard is nothing to look at by any means, it actually looks much better in the summertime, but hey at least I got the sky with this long exposure.
