Sunset Over Cheyenne

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.

The Slightest Change

An entire landscape can change with the slightest movement of the sun. Such was the case this evening here in southern Wyoming during that interesting moment between afternoon and evening. It seemed every time I blinked, the gradient of colors between the grasses and the sky would shift. And indeed, no evening is ever the same.

Evening Waves

10-16-2011 Lake Hartwell 11A lazy evening fishing on Lake Hartwell, SC circa 2011 with my dad. I didn’t recall from this day if we caught anything, but I do remember being so taken with the sky’s gradient of colors, the gentle slap of water against the underside of the boat and it being so peaceful. It was quiet on the water as the final few boats trolled along with only their electric motors barely humming, searching for hits near the bank. Impressive how just a photo can remind you of so many details from so long ago.
