This was the sky, approximately 12 hours ago...
It was one of those "...nothing is happening... no, we're not getting any dramatic sunset today days... nothing to see here days..."
And then, Wham! Bam! POW! Run for the camera....
Sunset! Dramatic sunset, I mean...
And you know these don't last long....
Five minutes, if you're lucky!
Suddenly, I noticed a glow coming from the window,
even though the sky was almost dark
Took a peek out...
Grab the camera!!
It intensifies... by the seconds...
Take a breath, steady...
Shoot the trees
They're like on fire
Every passing second
Almost all gone
Darkness envelopes the scene
Leaving the remaining slashes of deepening red,
growing smaller, lesser, duller
