SkySeason changes are among my favorite times of the year, especially when Fall is making way for Winter and Winter is moving out of the way for Spring.

It is a time of year when the sky provides magical light shows at sunrise and sunset. Sometimes, you sit on the top of a hill and wait for Mother Nature’s show to amaze you. Sometimes, it just sneaks up on you, as this sky did.

We spotted it while walking out of the Lowe’s in Christiansburg. I get the same sense of awe when the warm light of a sunset bathes our studio in The Jacksonville Center in Floyd.

I can look out the window and see the sun setting near the Buffalo.

I saw such sunsets many, many times while growing up in Floyd County and am rediscovering them again after returning. It’s the best show in town. It runs on its own schedule and it’s always free for anyone who just takes the time to enjoy it.
