You can't see me

Hide and Go Seek
So, I'm travel back from Lafayette last night and off to my right the sun is playing with a chalk and waterpaint sketch across the sky. As I drove, I said to myself "this is going to be the mother of all sunsets."

I was wrong. I drove past the clouds that the sun was using for the painting lesson. But when it finally got down to the horizon, I pulled over and started shooting hoping to catch those last fiery moments. It tried to play hide and seek behind some trees so I couldn't see where it was going.

But, when your the sun, it's hard to hide.

I promise this is the last sunset picture for a while....Unless the sun gets playful again.

There's a state park in Texas that you may have passed through without knowing it. It doesn't give up it's secrets easily, but it does give them up -- today on Pixel Eyed.

Keep the sunsets coming. They are never the same and the "watercolors" are beautiful.

I tried to get a photo of the sunset here last night. I was hoping to get detail in the foreground as well as the sky but I failed miserably. Sometimes a photo is just not meant to be. Your sunset is fantastic.
