With COVID-19 ravaging inside, and two massive forest fires ravaging outside, it’s been a rough few weeks in Colorado. While it is hard to find anything good about COVID, the forest fires have been giving us nice sunsets (I’d still prefer clean air). This sunset from our backyard became my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom. Editing this image was fairly straightforward. I lowered exposure by half a stop, and then increased saturation, dehaze, and contrast. I finished by lowering shadows, and adding a slight vignette.
WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
