The photos show cloud shadows and crepuscular rays cast by distant cumulonimbus formations as the sun (at 4° altitude) was already hidden behind the Tijuca Peak some 23 minutes before sunset. As sunlight shed on clouds located at several distances, they acquired the filtered colors of the setting Sun. In addition, intricate sets of dark (cloud shadows) and bright yellow bands (crepuscular rays, see last photo) further added to the interesting display at sunset. Photos were taken at 21:17-21:20 UTC with a Canon PowerShot SX60 HS camera (in sunset auto mode, set at ISO 100, Exp.1/1000s, F5.0-5.6 and stacked-5/1).
