I was absolutely despairing of taking a sunset snapshot for today this week. Any clouds we had in the morning were gone by the afternoon, making for blah sunsets. I started going through my archives to see what I could find to post that would meet the sunset requirements.
Yesterday TB and I drove back up to the Blue Ridge Parkway (flora and fauna shots for this coming week! Hurrah!), but instead of going all the way down to Sparta (we started at Meadows of Dan in Virginia and headed south), I decided to end the trip early and left the parkway at Low Gap, NC and went back home.
It turned out to be a good move, since a heavy line of storms tracked down from Kentucky and hit Greensboro about a half hour after I got home. If we had continued on to Sparta, it probably would've ended up as a repeat of last Saturday.
So, by the time for our sunset here there was plenty of interest in the sky to make for a nice snapshot.
I'm doing this with Anyes over at Far Away in the Sunshine as an ongoing project. Go over and see what she saw there in Vancouver.
