SkyWatch Friday: A Dickens of a Sunset

The sun went down beneath the long dark lines of hill and cloud 
which piled up in the west…; 
the light was all withdrawn…; the birds were silent; 
and the gloom of winter dwelt on everything. 
~Charles Dickens, "Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit"

and have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Very pretty. I like the big dark cloud against the orange sunset. That purple is a nice contrast - your camera really captured it well.

  5. Almost looks like a chunk of the sky fell out of the clouds, like a piece of a puzzle! Cool shot.

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"
