Burning Grass

Right before I walked across the road to take the photos that became my Crater Lake pano, I nonticed the sun setting the grass on fire on the outer side of the road that rings the lake. The tips the the grass were glowing orange red.

The red light dancing across the grass was so bright and vivid, it reminded me of the story of Samson tying torches to the tails of foxes and letting them loose in the fields of grain.

I’ve seen the sun light the grass many times, but I’ve never seen it set it on fire as it did that night.
