The Evolution of a Sunset

So here's the evolution of a sunset on Hagerman Lake a few weeks ago. It was absolutely stunning! I hope you get that sense from the photos.

 Golden Light, Blue Sky

 Like someone took a paintbrush to the sky

While the changing light can be the bane of my existence while filming video, it sure is a blessing when I'm photographing. 

Below is my "experimental" shot. I lowered the shutter speed and decided to see how it would look when the boat was moving. I like that the water is blurry and there is some detail in the sky but in hindsight I think I should have lowered the shutter speed even more. That way I may have gotten a more painterly/sense of motion image. But who knows! What do you think?
