Sunsets and Clouds

Sunset without clouds to enhance it is unremarkable.  There is really not much to see but a ball of fire going down and dropping below the horizon.  Add some clouds and it is always a magnificent work of art.

When my daughter was a little girl, we lived in California and we used to go hang out on the Pacific Coast Highway to watch the sun set.  It was something, I think, we both enjoyed.  We knew it was time to leave and go home when we heard the “Sizzle” of the sun hitting the water.  I miss watching the sunset over the ocean.  

Shark in the Sky

Rarely do I get to take cool photos of clouds at night but thanks to the almost full moon back lighting this cloud (the Full  Corn Moon was on September 6th) tonight I got my chance.  This cloud looked just like a shark swimming around the sky.  This was hand held and pretty much straight our of the camera – I cropped it a tiny bit.
