Sunset on the Cumberland Plateau

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

Late autumn sunsets can be beautiful here on the Cumberland Plateau.  The bright red glow in the sky to the west appeared after the sun had dropped below the plateau to the west.  God's colors are gorgeous.

This picture, from my archives, was taken on a clear November evening.

When God paints a subset sky it is truly awesome.

You have taken some GORGEOUS pictures but this ranks in the top five for sure. Have you considered cropping a third to half of the black off the bottom or do you have it there for balance? Just a thought.
