Last year Winter Fun Photoshow got a... "Fire & Ice" class and I immediately knew I wanted a fire in the sky. I picked Pumpkin, because of her vivid orange color and puts her in the snow at sunset then waited for similar colours... who didn't really came. I tryied several days a row, but never got luck... the sky was beautiful but not on fire.
So in the end, I kept thoses pictures for the photoshop class (see image below) and just picked an older picture for the "Fire & Ice" class, bacause... well you know... nature is not predictible.
See how a little wait can change a sky!
