End of the day; the sun drops into Burns Bog and flares up briefly.

Moments later, the light dies; I almost expect to hear the hiss of steam ...

(I know, things are not always as they seem. But at times, I'd swear -almost - that the fire was just beyond those trees.)

A Skywatch post.

    This post and photo should provoke a profound response, or at least a comment erudite and witty.

    I'm capable of neither. It must be time for more coffee.

  2. What a beautiful glimpse into the most private life of the sun as it gets ready for bed! Love this shot!

  3. The picture is beautiful and your narration really helps me add a lot of visualization of what must have actually happened!

  4. Wren,
    And now, I could use the coffee. :)

  5. I'll always think of that hiss now!


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
