End of the show

By mlseawell    
I had all but given up. I packed up and was slowly making my way back to the trail, concerned about not being able to see my feet because of the fading light. Antelope Island was beautiful this evening but honestly, I was a bit disappointed. After sunset, the clouds hovering over Buffalo point were dark; my wife and I witnessed some spectacular sunsets here from our living room, especially in winter. One more glance as I walked and the first hint of colors were appearing but not enough. In the dim light I finally managed to find the trail head, another glance and a little more change in the sky making me hesitate. But no, I'm going, turning my back to the scene and starting to walk down the path. Just for the heck of it I take one more look back and to my surprise I watched a fire slowly being lit in the sky. Knowing how fast this can I go, I unpack like a madman, throwing my tripod to the side and powering up my Fuji X-T2. The sky winks at me as to say "oh yea of little faith" as the colors twist and turn, with every move more vibrant than before...simply stunning! The moment arrives, a crescendo of light, shape and form resulting in nature's masterpiece, breathtaking to behold. The end of the show.

A lovely winter picture. I especially like the combination of warm pink and cold blue.

Very peaceful and emotive image. Also like the 'description' and story. So many people just post an image to the Gallery without a description which I think is a shame.
