SkyWatch Friday - Sunset over South Fork of the Snake River

Between snow storms this week, I was able to capture the setting sun west of the Menan Buttes near the South Fork of the Snake River.


Just another wild evening of color in Idaho.

You have squeezed the light just perfectly to intensify the coloura here, Bill. The bare branches add a sort of fragility to the overall scene. I love just those couple of leaves managing to hang on through all the weather!!!

Good post for SWF.

When we have skies like this our kids always say that their late grandfather is fooling around with God's painting buckets.
These again are amazing Bill.
