Mountain Sunset in Madison

We enjoy our sunsets in South Dakota. Here's a typical one, nothing splashy or dramatic, just the color of the sky tinged with orange and pink, a few clouds smudging the lightening blue.

This past year the crops were good, and even now in February the overflow remains, mounds of corn across the quiet street from the tallest building in town, the grain elevator.

You can see the streetlights just coming on, about 6:00, the promise now of days getting longer. Posted by Picasa

I believe SD has some of the most beautiful natural sunsets. Other places have oceans and mountains and oil refineries to accentuate their sunsets, but SD has the wide-open spaces and nothing is around to take away from the colors and sun's beauty.
