The sky darkens deep blue as the fireball sets.
Clustered clouds scatter like matter dispersing from the Big Bang.
New worlds and limitless possibilities stretch from horizon to horizon.
A figure framed by black signs sits perched like a bird with a view of the infinite.
The earth progresses around the sun into a new year. Anticipation of the unknown lingers like fog.
Our roaming photographer caught this shot close to home last year as a fan waited for the action to start at the Wise County Sheriff’s Posse rodeo grounds.
The balance of light and dark made it a simple photograph to take. An f-stop set at f/22 made the clouds sharp.
A second silhouette in the entranceway served to blot out some of the natural light spilling from the sun.
The shot elicits a question.
Does the shadowy figure remain a passive observer or eventually decide to step into the arena?
