The sunsets in Northern California during the first several weeks of 2012 were absolutely breathtaking. A few weeks ago I was driving back to Sacramento from my parents' place and this sunset made me gasp. So I decided I should pull to the side of the road and take some photos. Some of these were taken on a country road near my parents' place and the last two were taken on some property my grandfather owns in Galt. I would have liked to take more pictures there, but I was a little nervous about being there on my own - especially after I saw a strange man running across one corner of the field!
