Oh how beautiful! Are those current pictures? I would love to see some beautiful red skies on these dreary gray Pacific Northwest days (I had to work to get a glimmering of blue in my current pictures).

Happy New Year -- and thank you for sharing your photos throughout the year.

Beautiful skies, nice blog and music. I have a favor to ask: I have a friend, Charles, who has just started a blog and I would appreciate it if you could find time to visit and leave a comment. I'm afraid he he getting discouraged. He has lots of interesting stories to tell. He has been a Marine, a jet pilot a helicopter pilot and highway patrolman and other interesting jobs. He likes music and photography and is a Christian.
Visit him at:
Wings Like Eagles,
Thanks so much!

Hi Eaglesbrother, this is an amazing series of shots. Like you, I also do not mess with the colours. What you see is what I take, except sometimes I do crop a picture.
I have also been browsing through your site and been enjoying your art and pictures.
Thanks for stopping by.

Debra said...

Wow! What a gorgeous sunset series! I'm so amazed with the colors in your photos! The reds, oranges, purple, pinks and yellows are incredible! These are fantastic shots of a beautiful sky!

As for your comment on my photos....I do kknow that sometimes I have to sacrifice in the cold for just the right picture, but it's so hard! Honestly, I don't know how people take pictures while shivering, without camera shake. It was quite a challenge for me. lol
