Just as the sun set the edges of the clouds lit up and looked pretty cool but only lasted for a couple of minutes.

That's really a cool capture, Bob. The sense of vast space both on the landscape and in the sky make a pretty good match. Btw, I wonder if you did any extra sharpening at the USM.

Thank you bahadir! One thing we do have plenty of around here is flat wide open ground, I wish we had a mountain or two. In looking at this resized for the web version I do think I got a bit carried away with the USM.:G

I like the way the sun does that.....and most often for fleeting moments. Often, I wish for an open expanse like that to get more of the dramatic sunsets that occur here. Nice capture Bob.

Thank you VP! I got lucky this year, this field has soy beans instead of corn so I should be able to get more like this from time to time. I like your avatar, what kind of bird is that?

Ha,ha.... I know from the trees that surround me how a shorter crop like soybeans can help the sunsets:-).

Thanks for the comment on the avatar, Bob. That is a Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher, which is pretty numerous around here.Mostly populates areas from TX up through the midwest.
