    I had a hunch tonight's sky was going to be spectacular, so I went back to my favorite sunset spot, this time with the Promaster Spectrum 7 19-35mm. I was hoping the hay bales would still be there, and they were. I really need to pull this lens out more often, as it is excellent for wide landscapes. These pics were taken about 20 minutes apart. I used only the lightest PP to bring out the colors in the RAW files; they sky really was that amazing.

    I also found - within a minute of beginning my search - the lens cap I lost last night, and to cap off the night, a tiny Praying Mantis landed on me as I was sitting on a hay bale watching the sunset fade. It was too dark to get a pic of it without a flash, and when I pulled out my flashlight, it spooked and flew off. Still, that was pretty cool.
