Shortly after showing this image for the first time someone said, “Hell’s calling and they want their fire and brimstone back!” (it was followed by a smiley face so I know they were just joking.)

The reality of the joke though hadn’t escaped me.  Not because the sunset was so striking, but because for me I saw the exact opposite – I didn’t see fire and brimstone, I saw something so remarkable my jaw had dropped to the ground and it certainly wasn’t something from below.

Perhaps if they could see, as you only can in a large original, the bald eagle perched on a tree limb in the distance they may have thought differently (smiley face).

See Ya On the Trail!
