Photography by Norma Beaird
Before a late afternoon in rural Georgia turns into twilight darkness, the sunset transitions from glowing yellow to vivid gold, and then to a mesmerizing salmon pink mixed with periwinkle blue. And, right before the sun actually sets into the horizon, the sky will sometimes flood with a warmly infused tomato red; that, in the moment, seems to resemble a sky on fire with burning embers. If you can find a scraggly old tree over a desolate piece of land, you can create a rather apocalyptic-looking photo......or, you can try to convince people that you're on an African Safari and the lion just fell asleep.
