Sunset in the West

In Silver Lake, when looking west, the sun often sets the sky on fire, the horizon set ablaze under an ocean of warm blue.

Tonight, looking east, I was struck dumb by the cold beauty of the evening’s colors: Eucalyptus trees with warm, smoldering bark, become watchful and patient at sunset, gently moving, eyeing dusty indigo mountains under a cool, expanding autumn sky.

My iPhone camera could never do them justice.  Such beauty.
