The Fire


My nose was deep in a pot of chicken, mushrooms, onions, rosemary and artichoke hearts in the preparation of a nice dinner casserole when I happened to glance out the window. I could have seriously broken something as I raced through the house in search of my camera and onto the deck to capture this flaming sky. I didn't even remove the deck rail in framing the shot, I was so focused on the beauty of the sky. I can never get too many of these gorgeous sunsets during the winter. They warm my soul, my heart and my mind.

Oh my, that's an extraordinary sunset! They go so quickly, don't they? I tried to capture one this evening...although it was not a patch on yours...and by the time I had my coat and boots on most of the color had faded.
I'm glad you got there in time for this one :)

I think the deck rail adds the personal touch. I too would have cropped it off, but actually, I like it!

And wow, thats amazing!
