Continental Divide Sunset

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.

Sunset has a surreal glow.

I’m forever seeing shapes in the clouds.

The moon inspires, no matter its phase.

Where we live, neighbors light up the tree at the top peak for December.

Charlie turns ten months old!

Above the clouds

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.

Magical skies

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?

Brainard Lake at Sunset

As the weekend winds down, those of us who want to squeeze the last drops of fun from it enjoy the sunset as we look for moose. Tonight there were none, but the magnificent sky, wildflowers, and a lone duck in the lake were enough.

Lucerne Sunset

This is a “throwback” from three years ago as it came up in my Facebook memories. There is beauty everywhere you look in Lucerne. But the magical moments as the sun sets reflecting on the water is otherworldly. Combined with the leafless trees and the purple gardens, this is a sunset I will always remember.
