the skies have been boring with no clouds at sunset but the colors were intensified due to smoke from various wild fires (luckily none near us - and rather standard California summer/fall situations...) I had to take the shot :love:

Don't know how you managed those lines and colors at the bottom but they are pretty cool!

the swoopy line at the bottom third is the horizon line of the other side of our valley... here's the hill in daylight :D [link] (and a completely different season :giggle:)
