Soft, Billowing Fire in the Sky Behind Me … Chiang Mai, Thailand – GoldenHour Photography

This glowing goldenhour cloud was floating through the eastern sky, not the western sky.

The sunset … in the east

About 30 minutes before the sunset, nothing much was happening in the western sky. The sun was still hanging well above the horizon, surrounded by white clouds in a blue daylight sky. I figured I’d have to wait quite a while to catch any goldenhour photo worthy of the term. 

Soft white and deep blue and flaming orange

While I lingered on the rooftop, I turned towards the east. There, right in front of my eyes, was this massive, billowing cloud of flaming orange. 

All framed by a few black clouds and the deep blue of the late afternoon sky. And with a few soft tufts of white gently wafting from its peak.

Ya, I get plenty of great sunsets here, even without any seaside / maritime influence. This was taken from the rooftop of Maya Mall, up on Nimman Haemin Road.
