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.
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.
This plane was probably heading for Kirtland Air Force Base but that is just speculation on my part. Where ever it was going it was a cool plane.
I love to watch the sunset over The Three Sisters. The colors are always amazing even after the sun has dipped below the horizon. Personally, I think it’s best when it’s stormy and there are lots of storm clouds. Free entertainment every night.
