A day's end #2

Day’s end, phase one: The low sun throws shadows from trees one hundred yards away across this bean field. The crest and large bush lie just out of reach of the approaching fingers of darkness.

The day ends with a comforting predictability. Shadows lengthen. The light turns warm and soft. As the sun approaches the horizon, the clouds begin to glow with gold and crimson hues, and reach their peak about 15 to 20 minutes after the sun has disappeared. Then night begins to settle in, the blue of the sky deepens into indigo and then makes its slow fade to black.

Day dies well.
