The late sun had fallen behind dense, dark clouds to the west, leaving the pond and distant houses in shadow, but softly illuminating the clouds above. What extravagant clouds they were! With dusty shadings of gray and blue, woven together by a delicate white lace, and conveying a sense of great depth, they drew the eye and the imagination to a distant world far beyond our little pond.

The photo was taken at 7:42 pm on July 8, 2012. True sunset came at 8:23 pm.
