While in Arizona…
We would try to see if we could catch the sunset every evening. Some nights were more brilliant than others, but in those moments it gave us a chance to step away from what we were doing and watch the transition of color and light before our eyes. Since we can’t all step out our front doors to see one, here is another beautiful sunset that can be seen at any time of day.
