The Real Sky Was Better

Tonight's sunset: the inky trees were crosshatched over the blue and rosy stripes of clouds. I like the tangled nest of lines gathered at the lower right, with the last pastel light peeping through. It was well worth braving the icy air to go for a walk earlier in the day. Later on, coming home with groceries, I drove beneath these gorgeous colors. I grabbed my camera to try to capture the fading sunset from my neighbor's driveway. The real sky was so much better, unwilling to live inside my camera.

I wish you all a creative and colorful 2010!

Yes, I got a glimpse of that 'real sky'. . . and I very much appreciate the reminder of how easy it is to get lost in an exquisite sunset. Then there's the moon .. .

Sending good wishes to you Chris for 2010...lovely red sky tonight. No sailor's delight in the morning though.

The enjoyment of nature is hard to catch. Sometimes you get a better picture(!) from reading...
