I saw this scene as I was arriving at work on Goodfellow Air Force Base in San Angelo, TX. I grabbed my camera, which is always in my truck, and I snapped this one shot. All I did in PP was straighten the horizon.

Goodfellow AFB is home to the DoD Fire Training School. The small structures you see are part of a large outdoor antique fire truck display...and one lonely mesquite tree.

Hello Billy! Amazing low horizon. Beautiful colors. Original work. Great effect. Best regard!

Beautiful shot!
Lovely sky - great colors. What an intense red!
Well, spring-like weather is returning to Central Texas so we should be able to get out and take nature shots this next week. :)

Hi Billy!
I'm a big sunrise and sunset fan and yours looks fantastic! Very sharp contours on the horizon, beautiful colors and nice pov. Looks like the perfect place to capture the sky on fire!

Hello Billy

The sky is on fire.This is an impressive display of colour.
The hues and tones are excellent.
A very lovely capture and you must have enjoyed it first hand.


I like the shock of red/orange in this late light sunset capture Billy..And you can just make out the silhouette of one fire truck right side..I was stationed at Lackland AFB back in the 70's..A very long time ago ;)
Well done,

Hi Billy,
Fantastic,beautiful colors,
