Crayon Colored Sunset

The sunset tonight appeared as if it had been drawn in the sky by a child with a box of crayons. The sun seemed to dominate the horizon with distinct rays eminating outward in shades of yellow and orange. I was witnessing this as I was driving, my view partially obscured by trees, buildings, and power lines. By the time I reached the bridge, a spot with a clear shot down the waterway, the sun had finished setting. The sky was still colorful, but in a matter of minutes the painting had changed. While all sunsets are beautiful, no two are ever precisely the same, just as with all the moments of our lives.


  1. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. Nice to meet you, and I hope to spend some time looking around your blog also.

    As for the water drops.......see time passes already, I am the same way. I am so into photos of water droplets.


  2. I thank you too for the kind words, I also enjoyed your blog...beautiful photos.

    I've been blogging for nearly a year now and I tell you, it has changed my life. I am into photography and poetry like never before. Always was a hopeless romantic...but now with an audience and I don't have to speak in front of a crowd of real people...just the dog.

    And I see you're from the South somewhere, I sure miss living in Florida, especially right now, as I came home today to find my pipes frozen in my water, but we've had record cold that last week, so to be expected this time of year...drag out the heat lamps.

    Such is the life in the frozen North!

    I'm blogrollin' ya...thanks!
