Sunset over the Taos Plateau Volcanic Field, New Mexico. I haven’t been out shouting sunsets for a while. I prefer the effects of a sunset on something. I’ve never sold more than a few pictures of sunsets. But the effects of a sunset in the opposite direction, on the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, are much more popular. These days I prefer to sit and watch with a martini in my hand. So in honor of a gorgeous sky and sunset, here’s a panorama. Thanks for looking. G

Wow. Magical. Reminded me of the words of the Welsh hymn. Tydi a Roddaist. (Tydi a roddaist liw i wawr, a hud i’r machlud mwyn. trans. You who gave the the dawn it’s colour and the gentle sunset it’s magic)
Well my goodness that’s so Welsh of you. Do you get sunsets in Wales? I only remember rain, especially at the seaside. I’m kidding, it was mostly gray. Thank you Elizabeth. G
Like this one looks like it’s cooking pop corn in the middle.
Maybe but here are the popcorn clouds also called Mamatus Clouds. https://geraintsmith.com/potd/pages/archive/july_07/july_01_07.html

Very pretty, Geraint,
thanks for the golden glow, that’s as nice as finding an extra olive in that martini.
Don’t you know it. Thanks Larry. G
