An Inspirational Moment – Weird Sunset

There is so much ‘out there’ that inspires me. I wouldn’t know where to being to whittle it down to anything specific and much of it is very much a ‘moment’ thing.

Though, a dominant inspiring force for me is nature. Observing clouds, seasonal changes and weather patterns is almost as natural to me as breathing.

So I’m sharing one of my wild sunset images with you this week.

It was so weird, it blew me away!

No Photoshop, no filters, just as it was – in that moment.
