Sundown in the Pines

Sundown in the Pines

As we reached the top of the drive other evening when C and I went for our walk (followed by the cats -- with Pepper BEGINNING to come with us), the sun was just beginning to set behind the mass of pines. The sun's rays caught ONE pine in particular, lighting it up like it were lit by flame. I snapped a few photos, and tried to capture that incredible glow here.

Rain most of the day yesterday, a soft gentle showering so needed by our plants. I ache for those worried, frightened and fighting the fires in California and offer my heartfelt prayers.

May those awful fires be contained today, lives and homes and wildlife saved .....

Be well.

Oh Lin this one is so very incredible. I am overwhelmed by the glorious glowing colors and the way you captured the way the setting sun lit up the trees and the sky. WOW and double WOW. This one needs to be in an art show, a museum, on display where thousands can see it up close and personal.

And today I turned over the Sept. page of your wonderful Red Bubble calendar and another lovely, beautifully executed scene greeted me. Your art brings such beauty and joy to my life.

Glad you had some soft rain. We are enjoying some cool fall weather with sun and I love it.

Tis is lovely! A beautiful reminder that as the days grow longer the sun gets weker and lower in the sky. The ornge gold sunsets will be less intense.

This is gorgeous, Lin!
