Today’s Photo:  Fire on the Mountain

This is one of my first sunset photos.  I was enthralled with the saturated sky, but almost no color anywhere else.  Usually, there is some color to the rest of the world, but not for this one.  The color was awesome and covered most of the sky and then it was gone.  All in the matter of a few seconds.  I used to say that it was just being in the right place at the right time, but now I know better.  It is a matter of a minor bit of meteorology, reading the clouds and making sure the angles are going to be right for the shot you want.  The rest is just waiting for the sky to be painted like you want it.
