Sunset outside Mysore Palace

Sunsets make for amazing vistas. I shot these last year, in December 2010, outside the Mysore Palace, at  6:18PM. The sun had set a short while back, we were making our way out of the palace, after having spent an enjoyable hour and a half inside it, having walked the premise of the palace and made a short visit to the Prasanna Krishna Swamy Temple inside the palace grounds, and the scattered clouds were reflecting the dying light from the setting sun in a most amazing manner.

I had to make sure to underexpose lest the whole sky come out washed out, with only a hint of orange in the resulting photo.
