An Incredible Sunset in Frisco North Carolina

The sun grew larger with each inch it dipped towards the horizon, eventually settling down and tucking itself into bed.  It will be a while before conditions line up perfectly for this display of beauty.  But, you can be my calendar will be marked to be on the lookout.
