Every afternoon I sit in my backyard and gaze up at the pine trees. As the sun starts to set, the trees begin to glow orange and yellow. I stare and stare trying to figure out the shadows and the colors.
It’s only when the sun is just right that the trees look this way. Soon the sun will duck down behind the horizon and the trees will go grey.
