The sun was really showing off -- looking bold as it played with different layers of clouds during its slow descent. I'm sure it was really ticking off the darkness -- holding it at bay and taking more than it share of time. Even as it slipped below the horizon, it was just warming up -- throwing amazing colors from its palette onto the clouds.
The clouds seemed to be indifferent to the war between the sun and darkness. "Look this is not our fight. We're just sailing by. It's not our fault if one of you throws brilliant oranges on us, or the other other cloaks it in dark somber shades."
