Sunset clouds over a mesa south of Fontenelle Creek

This was one of the strangest sunsets and nights I have seen. The photo was taken at sunset, but I am facing the east, not the west. At dark the clouds filled with an incredible amount of cloud to cloud lightning -- thousands of strokes, but I did not hear any thunder even though this rainless "storm" lasted all night. It just circled and circled around me. By morning, one tiny cloud was left, trailing a bit of virga.
