It's become my custom of late to try to catch the last few blazing seconds of the sunset on film. My balcony and the time of year provide me with a wonderful view of the fiery event. The sky evolves significantly. First, the light gains an orangish hue, and soon the sky is lit up like bon fire. Purples and deep blues emerge around the periphery. Slowly at first, but gaining momentum. If there are any clouds in the sky, they ignite, burn brightly, and fade. The last seconds provide a pillar of flame, soon extinguished by the ever-growing evening.
