As I left the office about half an hour before sunset, to begin the long journey home (i.e. a hundred feet or so down the hill) for Erev Sukkot, this is the sight that greeted me.
Definitely a stunner. Then just a little later, the clouds parted, and the full moon was visible, confirming that it indeed must have been the 15th of Tishri.
The view the other direction was not too bad either.
We certainly are feeling the shifting winds of the season when rain again becomes likely, although as yet none has fallen here. It sure feels like fall, and a fine time to have nothing but joy (see 16:13-15) for the harvest that sustains us.
