The four photos were taken over a period of only 8 minutes, but the sky changes dramatically over that short time. All were shot at f/5, but the shutter speed of the last shot was much slower (1/40 sec) compared to the earlier shots (1/125 or 1/200 sec) because the sky was quickly getting darker. This was one of the better sunsets that I've seen in a while. I was working outside and not even planning on taking any pictures when all of a sudden the sky just lit up in these beautiful colors! Fortunately, camera and tripod were nearby.
