 How can you not be awed?

Yummy colors! Did you guys shake and roll during the Earthquake? I was in Irving, close to the epicenter during the first one.

William Kendall said...

Beautiful! We get sunsets like that on rare occasions.

Well caught. You seem to be in a good location for sunsets. When I see that we have a good one, I can't find a good spot from which to shoot it.
