Yesterday evening, as the pups and I emerged for our sunset ski, the entire world glowed golden.
We took a beeline route to a sunset viewpoint. But first, R needed to stop and wriggle in the rough snow, scratching his his back. Although the dogs have spent a large portion of our outdoor time on their backs recently, they always hop onto their feet, looking dignified, when I pull out my camera. This surreptitious distant photo is the best that I've captured so far.
When we crested the ridge and glimpsed the western sky, the orange clouds glowed against the eggshell blue sky with the snow-cloaked mountains barely visible.
A closer look almost showed a surreal scene.
