Sky Watch Friday: Sunset

As we were heading back to our hotel from Old Faithful, on our first night in Yellowstone, we stopped to take this pic. Even though the sun had already dipped below the horizon its rays still illuminated the clouds above our head so that they looked a lot like flames dancing in the sky.

I love the sky like that... It actually reminds of late fall evenings when the sun goes down at 4pm and lights up the sky for my drive home. Always a reason to stop for a Dunkin' donuts coffee to celebrate a beautiful skywatch...
*A wonderful weekend to you*
