Sunset!   Leave a comment

There were probably a lot of people taking pictures of the spectacular sunset yesterday.

It was worth it.

The real show, though, was not in the west, but in the east, over the mountains.

There were some amazing cloud formations there, and they just got better as the moments passed.

Of course, Peaches had to get in there somewhere.  That bright streak at the center of the photo was especially interesting.  It looked as if the top of the cloud had folded over, and the darker streak beneath it was its shadow.  Gorgeous.

The evening was topped off by the crescent moon rising among cotton-candy clouds.

It was a fitting end for a memorable evening.
