A Royally Rural Sunset

Taken last evening as I stood in my driveway.
This shot has not been touched up. It is Straight Out of the Camera. I pulled into my driveway, got out with my camera and clicked and clicked and clicked.
Linking to Rural Thursday and Skywatch.

i love the fall skies! it's like the clouds and sun get together and find a way to compete with the changing leaves. :)

It's fantastic! I haven't seen many wonderful sunsets because the utility lines are in my way...but I can't seem to capture the fabulous colors, either. This is especially wonderful because of the "frame" of trees.
