Foto Friday: It Made the Sky Look Red Like a Nuclear Ray

Sunset from home, Mar 17 2011

Sunset, in the general direction of Japan. Coincidence?

I was going to write something about the nuclear hysteria gripping the news media, but this pretty much covers it. (Short version: When I was born we'd been nuking the hell out of the desert for more than a decade, and the radiation only made me taller and stronger. And the extra digits come in handy.)

I tire of taking pictures from the same vantage point. So when it looked like we were going to have a nice sunset on the 17th, I prepared to go down to the highway, where there are no pesky trees, and I can get a good view. But the sun just sank into a mass of gray clouds, so I figured to hell with it. And then we got this.

After the light was gone it occurred to me that I didn't even think to get out my film camera, and that made me sad. What I need is some extra limbs, so I can shoot with both cameras at the same time. But you never get a break like that when you need it.

I was pretty sure that I'd used this title before, but I couldn't find it.
