A fiery sunset never ceases to amaze me.  On this particular evening, the winds were as fierce as the sky so I hid behind the safety of the truck to shoot this sunset progression.  I used my Sony 100-400 mm lens to bring the sun closer and make it appear  larger in the frame.  I was in awe of the reflected sun, called an inferior-mirage and caused by different temperatures in the atmosphere as the sun passes through.
