Sunset Special -

Newest creation from the bench... was thinking skykomish sunrise, and changing the colors to add some dark tones to it. throw in the purple, lilac and pink guinea. and walla.... colors remind me of central oregon sunsets.... didn't feel appropriate to "skykomish" the name as originally intended, since i've yet to fish that holy water... hopefully this spring...
anyways, enjoy--
