Tonight on the way home, I was thinking how much I love the longer days and wondered if I’d see a sunset. The view as I reach the top of the steep road home is often noteworthy. The paved road ends and the majority of the last two miles is downhill. Today I pulled over to take these photos. Unfiltered, you can see the snow on the peaks in the distance as the sun illuminates the clouds. Perfect timing.
Most days I look up to admire clouds, find interesting shapes, and enjoy sunrise and sunset.
These photos were taken from the window of the plane. The first one looks like a bear climbing out of the water (clouds) and the others were just ones I found interesting.
The second and last pictures are of the sun from different angles and points of sunset.
Eyes flicker open
Will the morning colors be putting on a show?
All day I glance skyward
at the wisps
at the billowing puffs
at the myriad of shapes
always putting on a show.
Setting my imagination free.
And then, evening colors.
Will they bring another dazzling display?
Stopping for sunset
snow covered distant peaks glow
fleeting views captured.
