This morning the light on the ridge was glorious! A harbinger of a beautiful day. Then it began to drizzle. When the light faded it went quickly. Last week was a beautiful evening that made the entire sky glow. I took pictures in all directions.
I’ve taken so many picture of the sunsets during the Carr Fire. Here is another set. I took these about ten days ago. We are still getting the surreal sunsets. The fire is contained and the burnout operations are done. Other fires are burning in the area. We won’t be without the smoke anytime soon.
For me this is the sunset season. We don’t get a lot of the climate conditions in the Summer for spectacular sunsets, unless we have smoke in the skies from wildfire. Over the Winter we get spectacular sunsets, which I enjoy as I drive home from the woods. I get home after dark, but while I drive I watch the sky as it changes. Last night was stunning.
Some days I need to experience the beauty in my world. Today was one of those days. Today was exceptional. Here are some pictures I would like to share with you. Today the sun shone warm. Tomorrow a storm is coming.
Another fire broke out in the north state. This one is the Stafford Fire and is threatening the town of Hayfork. These fires with all the destruction and chaos they bring with them often finish the day with one last bit of drama.
