Our house sits on our property so that we don't have a direct view of sunsets.
This was taken last night from our deck looking south of where the sun was setting. (Picture is straight out of the camera with no coloration.)
The sun goes down behind a large copse of trees in the back part of the chicken pasture. We could clear cut the area so we could see the sunsets but don't want to do that because this area of trees and brush gives our poultry a safe place to scurry to whenever they are threatened by a hawk or owl overhead. Many times we hear a cacophony that would wake the dead coming from the poultry yard but can't see a single bird anywhere. You can be sure at those times they're deep in this "safe area" where birds of prey likely can't even see them let alone swoop down and carry one off for dinner.
