It's interesting, I think, how these two photos were taken five minutes (or less) apart and from the same location but looking in different directions; the top photo is looking west while the bottom photo is looking south. But I'm getting ahead of myself. I have the weekend off this week...the first in about a month. It feels great...two days in a row! But I had some reading and writing I needed to accomplish and that's what I was doing when I looked out the window and saw the above scene. Knowing that skies like that usually only last a few minutes I took a break from my keyboard and grabbed my camera and went out on the front porch. I took the above photo then a couple minutes later then one below. A minute later the view pictured above had passed and it was officially dusk. I stood for a minute and welcomed the cold air on my skin. It was a nice break; I needed it. Anyhow, I thought I'd share.
