August 17


We have a lot of trees in our yard which is great, but it prevents us from seeing sunrises or sunsets. Last night I noticed the everything had an orange look, so I hopped in my car and drove down the road so I could see what the sky looked like.
This is the color the sky was, straight out of the camera with no edits. Isn't it beautiful?

Oh my, that is so beautiful. I love sunsets...how unique each one is reminds me of how the Lord made each of us so different yet beautiful just the same.

Everytime I see a sky that looks like this I think about how much our Lord loves colors.

Our yard is like that, too! My friend who lives a couple miles out and is also a blogger, posts the most gorgeous pictures of the sky! It's amazing the difference the trees make!

DH came in the other day and said: That must be a beautiful sunset because the sky is all orange.

Well, we are like you. An acre here but with trees and we don't see sunsets. So, like you, I jumped into the car and drove up into the school yard where it is elevated enough to see sunsets. By the time I got there, however, there was only a little color left at the skyline. No great sunset at all. :( But you managed to do very well. Nice catch and beautiful shot.

That is beautiful Mari - I tried chasing a sunset the other night without success.
