The setting Sun lights up a classic Canadian prairie skyscape.
This was sunset last night, July 11, from the historic Reesor Ranch in southwest Saskatchewan, on the north edge of the Cypress Hills. The clouds opened up across the sky in a Chinook arch, with clearing to the west where the waxing Moon and Venus were also setting into the twilight.
It was a stunning scene looking out over the plains from the highlands of the hills.
I’m in the area for a week of shooting, weather permitting.
This shot is a 7-section panorama, stitched with Photoshop’s Photomerge command.

Every place on Earth has its own sky qualities. Tropical skies are wonderful but there’s nothing like the long prairie twilights and the big skies of the open spaces.
I love where I live, in what is to my husband a River Swamp Pardise, in north Florida. But oh, I do miss the SKY.
