A little closer look at the little burning tree. Hey, maybe this is THE burning bush! But I didn't see Moses hanging around, so probably not!
All of the sky to the West was brilliantly flaming, or seemed to be. This glow just
OK, one last shot before the sun is gone. I always hate to see these end.
