Description

The sun sets through smoke from the Preacher Fire in the Pinenut Mountains, as seen from adjacent Smith Valley, Nevada.Summer thunderstorms often drift east as sunset approaches, so you can follow them just outside of where they're dropping rain. On this night however the sun was putting on a better show to the west, as it set through smoke from the Preacher Fire.
