We were recently back in Illinois for Christmas, and on the way home had to snap a photo of the sky. I LOVE the sky in Illinois, as there is no other like it anywhere we have lived. In Illinois it seems as though you can see to the ends of the earth across the land, which also means the sunset is always in view. They are always phenomenal. This one proved to be no exception. In the picture it looks as though the sky is on fire, though it of course does not do the scene justice.
In real-life, the sky under the clouds was much more blue. This photo was taken from the car, so forgive any blurriness, please.
