sunrise and sunset

just another ozark sunrise

I sometimes go out looking for sunrises and sunsets, hoping to find nice ones. It's a little hard to understand, given that a good sunset is about the most spectacular sight that most of us will ever witness, why you don't ever see people put down their labors or pull over their cars and start to gather outdoors in twos and threes and tens and twenties to view the grand show that nature puts on as the sun is setting or rising.

This spectacle was a sunrise and I viewed it from Stonebridge Road, which is near my house. I can report that no one whizzing by on his way to work stopped to to view it with me, which is just as well because I probably would have resented the intrusion.
