Sunset Over Old Silo/ Sky Watch

Roofless Silo at Sundown

The barn is gone but the silo remains, part of it anyway. And isn't the sky stunning behind it? I LOVE it when I'm in the right place at the right time!

That is wonderful. Looks like the sun is simmering the sky!

Sorry to hog all your weather. I guess the National Weather Service doesn't merge in Canadian radar. I'm sure they are looking at it though.

My comment got lost in cyber space so trying again. I also left a comment on your old homestead below. . .

Your photo has two of the things I love best -- snow and sunsets. . . well, I also love bodies of water but that's besides the point. You captured them beautifully! I wodner if there is snow inside that silo?
