Another sunset

It had clouded up the other night, but about 4pm, I noticed the clouds clearing a bit and knew it would be a great night for a beautiful sunset. So we started off in hopes of finding a better/higher view. Heading out of town, we happened to be following our local BBVFD. Turns out there was a small field on fire right after where we were turning.

Apparently there's not an easy way for the truck to get across the creek bed from the right to the fire over to the left.

Where there is a will (or fire), there is a way! Too small for the engine, but I think this little tanker was able to follow the creek bed until it opened up. Not sure what they would have done had the fire been any bigger!

Just past the fire area, up a hill and looking west, we had this view.

Further down the road we had this view. (I may have to post the before/after of this, because my settings were off and this was a complete save.) And it's my favorite picture in a long time! I may even print this on canvas.

Down another road, chasing the sunset, we pulled into a field. As I came over the hill, I think we scared each other!

It changes so fast, it's really incredible.

Next time we'll be on the other side of this hill! I think the view would be even better!

Getting the little darlings ready for school the other day and I didn't open the kitchen blinds as early as I normally do. Once I did, I happened to see a glorious sight...the sky was on fire. I ran outside in my jammies and slippers to take this...


I hopped in the car and drove the 1/2 mile over to Webb school to see if I could get a clear shot...I was too late for the fire in the sky, but it was still lovely.
