Remains of the Day

This time of year I end up walking the dogs at sunset.  Since I am on the east side of the island, the sky is usually nothing really spectacular to see, or at least not as spectacular as sunrise.  Tonight, though, the whole sky was full of pink clouds that grew increasingly colorful as we went down Water St.  By the time we got to the end, the sky was bright orange.  I kept thinking I didn't have time to get my camera, so I just enjoyed the sight.  But the color remained so long that when we got home it was still bright.  I pushed the dogs through the door, grabbed my camera, got into the car and drove to Dog Island.  The sunset was quickly disappearing by then, and all I ended up with was this picture of its quickly fading finale.  I took it through the dirty windshield and didn't think to shut off the flash.  Nevertheless, it's still pretty impressive just the same.

Very nice!!! I've had to start keeping the dog leash wrapped around my camera. It's mornings here in TN that are nicest. The sun comes up over the mountains across the street past the pasture. Looking forward to more photos!!!
