SkyWatch: Sorghum Sunset





I captured this image of our neighbor’s field of sorghum illuminated by a radiant sky about ten minutes after the sun had disappeared below the western horizon. Oft times the most beautiful light of the day occurs before the sunrise or after the sunset.


This has been a beautiful week in SC Pennsylvania with cool clear nights and cool humidity free days. Perhaps the storms of the past weekend swept the last of the hot summer weather away.

For more Sky Watch and to join in on the fun click the SWF logo at the top of this post.

Fantastic capture.... perfect time to be out and about with camera at the ready... I've got the early morning bug at the moment... and a short walk in the peace and quiet at the start of the day is really doing me good.
