    Default Spooky

    Well, it is fire season in our neck of the woods again. We are in no danger, but an area that burned last year to the South West of us is burning again this year. Makes for some very spooky sunsets.

    Wow. Beautiful sunsets, but I feel guilty for thinking that now that I read why they are so beautiful in your post. You are right about the last one being spooky. That looks like 'something' is brewing.

    Cheers,

    Beautiful pictures, too bad they are the result of fires.

    Those look very apocalyptic, glad to hear that you are safe though. You have a great view :o)

    Cool pix! Even if they are a result of fire.

    It almost looks like the sun is sinking into a witches brew of some sort. Definitely a sunset better suited to Hallloween.

    Nice shots. I think the moon always looks creepy when we have fires here in So Cal. Weird orange/grey color.

    At one point the sun looked just like Jupiter, but I missed the moment while I got my camera.

    The smoke has cleared some today so we will see how the moon pic shapes up.
