Sunset after a thunder storm

Great sunsets will always occur when you are out walking the dogs and have reached your farthest point from home and your camera gear.
They will occur when you are having friends over for barbeque and it would be rude to dash off with your gear.
They will occcur when you are out of film and will continue until the film arrives.
When you are prepared and your camera is set up and waiting, they will occur on the distant horizon, just beyond the longest focal length lens you have available.
The only way to get a decent sunset is to fool the Sunset Gods. Hide your gear and pretend you don't care. The Gods, thinking you are not paying attention, will send a great sunset. Grab your camera and shoot.
