SkyWatch Friday: Breezy Sunset
We routinely get spectacular sunrises, but perhaps because we're perched on the eastern slope of the mountains, such sunsets are uncommon. Tuesday night's post-thunderstorm skies were an exceptional exception, though, and a no-brainer for this week's SkyWatch Friday submission! I took these from our front porch as we enjoyed the brilliantly blazing sky until dark...
I just kept taking photos as the sky kept changing colors...
A fresh, deliciously cool mountain breeze was making the grasses dance with such exuberance, even the sport setting on my camera couldn't make them hold still :-) ...

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.
~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
