West Texas Sunset

The sunsets in the big, open skies of west Texas are often spectacular.  On this December evening, the silhouette of this stately tree was so beautiful set against the colors of the sky just after the sun had set.  One of my favorite lines in Fannie Flagg’s book, Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven, is this:

“You know, Dena, there’s a secret to watching a sunset, most people think that once the sun goes down, that’s the end of it.  They stop watching too soon, because the really pretty part is just beginning.”
