This sunset at Maligne Lake in Alberta, Canada, was one of the more unusual sunsets I have ever observed from a lighting perspective. I set up well in advance of the sun setting and then once it did, it started getting darker and darker (which is normal) but then came a point where the entire scene started getting brighter and brighter and a noticeable glow coloured the area in
a reddish hue. It suddenly felt like I was witnessing a sunrise because of the noticeable shift in light.

After getting my final shots I talked to the woman set up to my left and she said that she noticed the exact same thing which was that it started getting lighter and lighter at one point. I guess that it was something to do with the cloud, but whatever it was, this photo is how it looked at the peak of the ‘Afterglow’.
