Not all nice sunsets require layers of textured high clouds lit dazzlingly from beneath. This was one of my favorites for its clean simplicity, punctuated by that fleeting moment when the plane passed directly astern of the setting sun. As a bonus, I was treated to well-lit thunderheads behind my back and color-crowned flanking towers over my left shoulder. The sky was putting on quite a splendid show in central Oklahoma that evening!
