Golden Clouds in a Darkening Sky



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Sunsets on the Plateau can be beautiful, even when looking in another direction. The sun had dropped below the Plateau behind me when I captured this photo of golden clouds in a darkening sky.
