The idea is to have a standard way of decribing a sunset.
OK.. this is where it gets technical….
The sky is broken up into 4 sectors, with dividing lines running north to south.
Sector 1 is 30 degrees up from western horizon
Sector 2 is the next 30 degrees
Sector 3 the next 30 degrees
Sector 4 is from directly overhead to eastern horizon.
So the overall simple syntax is like this…….
Sector, Percentage, Formation , Height, Colour , Effect
eg : 1, 30, Mottled, High, Fairy Floss
Lets try a real example..,,
Sector 1,30, Solid, Brilliant Orange
Sector 1, 30, Solid, Bright Pinks
Sector 2, 80 Thick, Low, GreyBLue
Sector 1, 20, Whispy, Orange, Sun
Sector 2,20, Whispy, Mid, Duotone Silver/Grey, Sky
Sky (Background) Assume it’s BLUE.
