El Paso Sunsets Week — Part 1


Because of the wildfires out here in the west and other conditions, it’s been a great summer for sunsets. So, this week I’ll be sharing some recent sunset and sky photos, including on this week’s Fun Photo Friday a rather impressive shot of the Moon just past 1st quarter phase. The picture above was taken on 15 August.
