I love looking at the sky .... it has so many faces and moods !!
This was a sunset that I captured a little while ago, while the Hubby and I were out on an evening walk.
I think that there had been a number of bad wild fires in California, which tends to make for spectacular sunsets here in Northern Nevada..
The sky literally looked like it was on fire and the colours changed as we stood, spellbound, watching....

In the summer of 2007, there was a large wildfire, up in the hills, directly in front of us. As the sun started to slip behind the plumes of heavy, yellow smoke, it started to turn red.
made for quite a spectacular sight...
Unfortunately, it looks very much like there will be more opportunities, this summer, for photos like these. :-(
