Part of a New Mexico sunset

 

Starting August 2018, I'm adding a page for clouds and sunsets and maybe other things. I'll begin with the image shown above, which I took from my back yard. When you live in New Mexico, sometimes the great sunsets find you.

Cirrus clouds are popularly known as mare's tails, and in the photo above it's easy to see why. This photo was taken from my front yard.

A photo taken in my back yard on the first evening of October 2019. People from other parts of the country may think that the colors are exaggerated, but for a couple of minutes the sky looked this much on fire.
