Sun setting in grass

Sun setting in grass, originally uploaded by MontanaRaven.

The wildfires in Idaho are thickening our normally clear air. It's a summer soup of color out there. The smoky air makes for some outrageously beautiful sunsets.

I shot this almost-abstract photo lying across our sleeping bags. Tim had spread them out in the upper meadow. We slept under the stars. There was a gentle persistent breeze out here in the open but that didn't discourage the mosquitos. I stayed awake for a long time, mostly because I couldn't resist waving those micro-monsters away from my ears (their buzzing is one of my least favorite sounds in the whole world!) Sometime in the wee hours, the mosquitos gave up foraging for blood and I finally drifted off into a dream.
