Skagit Flats Autumn and Sunset

Patchwork quilt of crops

Fields of golden stubble and deep rich furrows

Shorn of their heavy loads

Entire valley bathed in iridescent golden light

Shadows quickly stretching long then longer

Ball of sun melting behind the islands

Dripping into the bay

Racing against time

Clouds stretched like taffy across mountaintops

Dramatically changing tints of rose gold and pink then orange and red

Reflecting off leaves lingering in every shade of fall

Skagit Flats Autumn Sunset
