A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
I first went outside to check the western sky and came back in and told my wife that there wasn't much to see. While I went to the back door to check the sky, she went back out the front door and called me to come. In just that fleeting moment the sky turned to burnt orange (top photo); three or four minutes later, the sky turned to burnt pink; just three or four minutes more and the color had mostly faded as shown in the bottom photo. The moral to the story is that if you want to take pictures of dramatic sunsets and sky colors, you had better be standing there with your camera because you won't have time to go get it before the colors fade. The Master Painter does a beautiful job, but his job is over with in a big, big hurry.
