    I always look forward to your Saturday’s post of “Recommended Reading”! Better than the Funday Sunnies if you ask me.

      A lot of people tell me this! I wouldn’t have guessed when I started this how popular it would be.

        I’m glad to hear it is so popular! What makes it so good is that you include photography stuff along with some thoughtful social stuff. It makes for a good combination.

    I like the term broiler but I’ll use it for a sunset. Since there are massive mountains to the east of wherever I have lived in California I don’t get to see a sunrise over a flat landscape. However, I have always been able to view the Pacific Ocean to the west for sunsets and took many a picture of them over San Diego and San Francisco. One sunset, a very intense broiler, appeared over San Diego back in September 1972 while living in a dorm at SDSU. I have a few Kodachromes trying to catch it because it extended from the horizon to over my head and then beyond. Rolling clouds from yellow to purple. I have never seen such an intense one like that since.

      One thing about living in flat Indiana is that the sun is never blocked by the landscape. That 1972 sunset sounds amazing.
