Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

November 23 Sunset

The evening sky was especially beautiful today. Here's how it looked at Smith Farm when the sun was low:

At home,  a few minute later, it looked like this: 

Looks sort of like a galactic war over Chestnut Mountain.

Here's a closer look.

This one looks like a spaceship is hovering over Jack's Mountain.

Here's a closer look at Chestnut Mountain.

A few minutes later, the sun sank below the horizon. Jack's Mountain is to the right; the edge of Chestnut is to the left.

Another close-up shot of Chestnut Mountain.

You can see the mountains in Floyd County in this close-up.

 The sun sinks, but the odd clouds linger.

To the north, a narrow cloud-band stretched across the sky.

To the northeast, odd clouds hung over Smith Mountain.

The clouds put on quite a show today.
