The Blue Flame of Sunset

so it snowed a few days ago, and i have been expecting more clouds to form due to evaporation of the melting snow.. from my observation, more clouds means beautiful orange-ish sunsets, and so i was waiting for that yesterday evening...

 

when it was orange-ish, there weren't that many clouds, so i waited some more and it slowly turned blue and then this giant cloud formed out of nowhere and it gave this nice reflection of the setting sun...

 

the moon showed up and the communication towers' lights lit up... when it looked like the perfect moment, i took this shot...

 

p/s: i think the best thing is that the mountain lions didn't see me (i was by myself) last night because the police here recently told us there's been sightings of mountain lions around... and believe me, yesterday i also saw big cat-like footprints on the snow... i kid you not, it was pretty scary..... i could've died yesterday but i thank God i'm still alive today...
