Unshared Sunset

Posted 1/9/2011 10:28pm by Eugene Wyatt.

On the way to the farm I was struck by the vastness of the fiery sky; but I realized I couldn't get to the sheep before the sun had gotten too low to photograph this ever furtive light behind them.  As I drove toward the sun, the colors evolved, the dark clouds were ablaze as if an arsonist had torched the sky.

Beauty is communal, it must be shared to be realized.  There was a sense of aloneness to this splendor; there was a need to picture it, to tell someone about it.
