|Sunset over Lake Champlain, taken from St. Albans, Vermont|
Oct. 15, 2012
As the sun set, the clouds lit up to the same tone of orange and red and yellow that graced Vermont's hillsides this month.
Even before the sun entirely set, the clouds took on a odd pattern and color. It looked fake, like a badly painted theatrical backdrop. And the trees below were the "wrong" color, orange and yellow, making the surroundings look like a different world.

and a setting sun helped create "fake" looking colors and
textures in the clouds in this view from Georgia, Vermont
For the record, no photoshopping here.
