Homegrown sunset…

It feels a little like cheating, to go out for the sunset in my own neighborhood, instead of driving to more scenic spots for the sunset I mean.  But the reflections were pretty so I was glad I came out, even if it was 20 degrees colder than the night before and I didn’t think the colors would get much prettier than the feature photo. 02-07-20homesunsetreflections

I retreated to the car to get warm, and that’s when I noticed the color in the sky to the east.  And the flocks of birds that were racing across the sky, heading south.02-07-20homesunsetbirds.jpg

And the clouds must have parted because now I was seeing the moon.02-07-20homesunsetmoon.jpg02-07-20homesunsetreflect2.jpg

I know better than to give up on the sunset too soon, but for some reason I left shortly after I took the above picture, and in the time it took to drive a few blocks to my house this happened.02-07-20homesunsetstreet.jpg02-07-20homesunsetstreet2.jpg

The sky to the east was still spectacular.02-07-20homesunsetstreet3.jpg

I guess I feel like I should have something ‘better’ in my photos than a simple mobile home park.  Maybe that’s why it feels like cheating if I don’t drive 45 minutes to find just the right spot.  But Mother Nature doesn’t discriminate, fancy or humble she puts on the same show for us all.
