End of the Day – Fire in the Sky

Last Saturday was a solo hunt for me. I enjoy hunting with company, but sometimes it’s nice to have the freedom to make ones own decisions.

That’s how it was on Saturday afternoon. I hunted an untested blind and had some success, getting some close decoying shots at specs and bagging two nice birds.

After the final shot, I snapped a couple photos of Lola with the specs. The western sky was lighting up.

The water was cold and Lola would rather have stayed on dry ground, but she retrieved these birds.

I could see that the sky was lighting up as we walked from the pond. On the way back to the truck, the sky grew brighter and brighter until I had to stop a take a couple photos. For a better look, click on the photo.

A fireball grew next to Mt Diablo.

The core of the sunset was brighter yet.

One of the best sunsets....

You never know about the next surprise. And, the photos don’t always to justice do the event. In this case they did.
