This photo was taken looking East just a few minutes after the sun went down behind the mountains behind me. It was clear earlier that the Sand Fire was going to grow and the chance of a brilliant sunset reflecting off of it was pretty high. As I write this, the fire has spread to over 3300 acres, up from the 1500 acres just a few hours ago.
I also took some photos a few hours after this that I will post later.
