The Lingering Sun...

"A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone,
and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone,
and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going.
And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, 
and darkness crept over the land from the east."
John Steinbeck

Driving home from the grocery store yesterday...this is what I saw...

Linking to...


  1. Gorgeous photo! Great colours, clouds and landscape.


  2. OMG! If that's not the prettiest thing I have EVER seen, I'm Queen Elizabeth! GREAT SHOT!

  3. That sky is just gorgeous (makes having to go grocery shopping worth it!), and the Steinbeck quote to accompany it is absolutely perfect!

  4. Beautiful capture of the fiery sky. Happy sky watching.


  5. I can use your sun for a bit. It´s been dark for a week now. :(

  6. Love the color in this! Beautiful!

  7. Thanks Karen!!!

    Thanks Anne and Hootin' Anni!!!

    Definitely a worthwhile grocery trip Laloofah!!!

    Thanks Brian and LarryD!!!

    Hope you've started breathing again Susan!!!

  8. that Steinbeck did have a way with words.

  9. I think I'll start going to your grocery store!! I like that Steinbeck quote. Any idea what it's from?

  10. I agree Margaret!!! I loved reading a matter of that I think of it...I should read him again!!! East of Eden was my favorite...

    It's from the Grapes of Wrath Adele...believe it or not, our Vons (the only grocery store in town) is the largest grossing Vons in the United States. They are constantly busy and regularly have every aisle open...locals complain about how busy it gets, but even when it's really crowded...the check out is faster than most checkouts down south!!! They've got it dialed in!!!

  11. The Steinbeck quote fits this image perfectly!
