My husband and I pulled over on the side of a road overlooking the city of Cheyenne, WY on our way home from errands as the sun was setting.
We are blessed with many beautiful sunrises and sunsets here on the high plains, but every once in a while, we get a really spectacular one. Tonight was a really lovely display with the city lights stretched below us and the Rockies in the far horizon, backlit by the sun’s final rays.
This route into Cheyenne, WY is generally just another day of the same view we see on occasion when running errands heading back into town. It struck me from the passenger seat last week how it might look in black and white. It’s always interesting how the things we see daily can be so striking through a different filter.
The wide-sweeping sky from tonight’s quiet walk about the neighborhood. Soft post-sunset colors, the cadence of your feet on a dirt road and a slow wind through the trees is a balm to the soul the only nature can offer.
