All photos were taken on the 11th of December 2016 by Osore Misanthrope who was in pajamas at the time [16:00] and couldn’t move from the door to capture more ;-).

I got up around 16 pm, had a quick breakfast and glanced through the window commenting how strange the sky is. Dim light was scattered between weird, gloomy clouds. The whole scene was mostly grey, with the very pale orange colour (papaya whip/peach) barely visible above and between airy canvas. Few minutes later, I approached the window again and saw a glorious transformation. It took me another few minutes to take photos (with a break of minute or two due to my escape from the front door – some people were approaching and I was standing like a freak in pajamas with my phone) and by that time the sunset was over (or almost over because the colours changed from orange to red and then quickly faded). Later I edited them using simple, but effective Microsoft Office Picture Manager. (I avoid using advanced editors because I want to try every single option, which is time consuming when you have millions of them and you are not very familiar with/rarely use the program on the first place.) Original photos are just a worthless, pale shadow of what I saw with my eyes, so it was inevitable to make them extreme with high contrasting and adjustments in order to make the (true) art, not just another imitation of reality known as the ”failed realism or “the realist’s attempt”.

Telegraf, a Serbian online news-site, shared some of the photos people made on the same day as I, but with at least two differences: they had better cameras and shared it on social networks on the same day (I waited for 6 months to share them exclusively on this blog).
