I often step outside at sunset if I’m at home and look to the west. If it looks interesting I’ll get my camera and record some aspect of what I see. Sunsets are so varied based on conditions and they literally change before your eyes as the earth rotates into night. Most everyone probably has a myriad of sunset pictures and very few are alike. I’m no exception. Here are two Sonoma County sunsets with a quote to go with each.
“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.” ― John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
“Soon it got dusk, a grapey dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgundy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries.” ― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
