This photo was taken in November of 2008 in southeastern Wyoming. I saw the light suddenly change while inside the house so I went out to look and saw a rather decent sunset. I quickly grabbed my camera and the sunset had already changed to this. I quickly snapped a few dozen photos all over the place (planning a panoramic stitch) and literally a minute later, this view was already gone. It was still breathtaking, but it was no longer red; it had faded into light lavenders, and other blues. Much excited by this once-in-a-life-time view, I went back inside and stitched the photographs together. As this was before I was on DA or anything similar, I just shared it with a few forum friends. Fast forward a few months perhaps, and I suffered a hard drive crash; this photo, had NOT been backed up... or so I thought for four years or so. Since that day, I've frequently gone through my "sky" folder in my pictures directory wishing I still had this photo, all I had was a small thumbnail I had saved from the forum where I shared it. Then today, I found an old flash drive. I plugged it in, curious as to what it contained. My excitement grew as I saw a folder named "photos", and a subfolder called "sky". Imagine my elation when I saw this photo in that folder. I quickly checked its resolution before opening it, and found that it indeed was the original. Joy!
Nearly every sunset in Wyoming is spectacular, but none so far have matched the glory of this one, and I feel honored to have a portrayal captured of it so that others may perhaps enjoy the scene a little too though I'll be the first to say that this photo doesn't even remotely do the scene any justice. Being surrounded by such a sky on a cool Wyoming evening with only birds singing, and a gentle breeze flowing through is something I wish everyone to experience for themselves sometime in their lives.
