Many time, especially during a sunset or sunrise, I find myself only focusing on the area directly around the sun.  Now granted, most of the time, this would likely be the best area to focus your camera on.  However, there are times when looking to the north or south can provide very unique and interesting shots due to the side lighting from the setting/rising sun.  This brings us to today’s shot.  This shot was taken Saturday night while out trying to find a spot next to some charred land from the day’s destructive grass fires, but alas we left too late and were quickly running out of daylight.  So we eventually just pulled over on a dirt road and set up shop for the sunset.  This area of clouds was south about 60 degrees from the sun.  Hope everyone’s week is off to a good start!
