I was writing an email to a friend yesterday evening and happened to glance outside just before it got dark. I noticed the sky looked pinkish to the south, so I grabbed my camera, figuring that there would be a good shot waiting. I believe I was correct:This is the way I saw it (meaning I tweaked the colors that came through in the actual photo).
And this is the way the camera saw it.
I like both the light that actually was, and the light that my inexpensive camera caught.
