First color

This is the first color I’ve seen at sunset since my return to Yarnell almost two weeks ago.  That’s because the wonderful fall skies have been a typical cloudless brilliant blue so sunset has been uneventful.

But I knew when these crazy bunch of clouds began to glow as the sun retreated below the ridge that a show was forthcoming.

Then the first color was rather subdued although nicely accenting the gossamer clouds.

Yet the lower sun bounced off the building clouds highlighting their bubbly shapes.

Followed by, low and behold, an eruption of rays.

And a golden dance upon the ridge top that bid the day adieu.

The clouds, a sign that winter approaches.
