Sunrise, Sunset.

“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.” 
― John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

I have seen some beautiful sunsets just in these few beginning days of February.

Anyone who knows me will tell you that normally I am not a morning person. However, I got a phone call from Raoul on the morning of this photo to tell me to look out the window. When I did, I immediately jumped out of bed, throwing a cat and a chihuahua into chaos with the rest of the bed covers and flew to my camera bag. I stuck my head out of the side door and this was the photo. I love it. It appears as if the sky is a roiling mass of lit gasoline or propane.
