I know, I know, a sunset photograph. Snore. But it’s not often I look out my window and gasp. I’ve never seen anything like the sunset we had tonight. I thought for a second something bad might be going on because helicopters are buzzing around, and they only buzz around when something bad happens, or if there’s a protest. I thought there might be some sort of chemical incident that created this. But I have a morbid imagination.

The helicopters are still flying around hours later, by the way. They keep circling.

  1. Not boring at all — I love this photo, could be a painting. Also symbolic as the “sun sets” on this turbulent year with an orange sky. Very apt.

  2. Wow that is beautiful! We did not have anything like that here. Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year to you and your kids!
