winter sunset over the almond trees

Two nights ago we had a most incredible sunset. The sun was actually glowing red through an unusual cloud coverage. I quickly headed a block from home to try to find some open ground to photograph. A break in the almond orchards was as good as I could do but what an awesome sight it was contrasted against the white of the almond trees in full bloom. I tried to catch it down a row of almonds but it seemed to be forever elusive dropping lower and lower in the sky. By the time I stopped for the second image, the colors had already started to wane in the sky.
