Great Balls of Fire! - Apologies to Jerry Lee Lewis

These photos are multiple shots of one sunset, August 15, in order of setting colors which started in yellow orange and ended with reddish sun with hues of magenta and blue. I took them from a road behind my cabin, not at the exact spot but general area, so some may appear out of order, but I may have been at a slightly different point on the road a tad to the right or left of center of the sunset.

I took another set today, Sunday. not sure they vary enough from these. To get the brilliant reds and oranges which reflect in water, it needs to rain and clear out the haze so there are sufficient colors in the sky AFTER the sun has already set. There is not much now.

Wonderful shots. Guess the one with the sun cradled in the clouds was favorite. You really had a great view.
Arkansas really is beautiful.

Pretty, pretty! My favorite is the first, because of the framing of the trees.

Hey it was nice to hear from you! and these pictures are great!! I hope you can add me when you get home. My son was a pharmacist tech for 8 years and thought he wanted to be a pharmacist till two of his best mentors had to stop due to stress of the job on their hearts.

Oh, I'm with Abe, I like all of them. They are beautiful, Carol Ann.

We're getting some thunderstorms, so I'd better run. Look forward to more of your fantastic pictures.
