Vinography Images: Sunset and Clouds

Sunset and Clouds

"Like some of my other recent images, this photo was taken in Sonoma county, near the town of Healdsburg. There is a certain point during the sunset where the sky begins to divide into light and dark, which this photo emphasizes. Between the light from the sun, the darkness of the cloud, the mountains, and the velvet dark of the vineyards beneath, it's like the world has been divided into four parts." -- Michael Regnier

The clouds are eaither tearing away from the earth or descening on it in a swarm of darkness.
Makes me think of The Ring.

Wow is this stunning. I think I recognize where you took it too (I live in Healdsburg). It reminds me of a saying in French, "entre le chien et le loup," (between the dog and the wolf) which they use to describe that time of dusk when day miraculously turns into night.
