Mother Nature Does Her Job

Sunrises and sunsets can be so surprising.   I'm not thinking about taking photos and then I take a glance outside, or step outside to feed the donkeys or tend to the chickens, and just think, "Wow!"

So I get my camera, take some shots of the early part of the sunset.   I stop, feed the donkeys, notice the sky is changing and becoming even more incredible.   I pick up my camera again, take a few shots (well, more than a few), then go tend to the chickens to get them locked in for the night.   I go in the house to feed the dogs.   After they're finished, and I think I'm finished for the evening, I see the biggest sky of all.   More photos and before long I have another 100 to sort through.   

Looking North

Looking South from Our Place

A Little More Time Passes
Edited to Show the Cattle in the Dust
And the Grand Finale
And so I feel satisfied and thankful to Mother Nature for once again showing me her beauty.   It's often times beyond what I can imagine.

Lovely or destructive, Mother Nature never fails to produce.

We had horrific storms here on Sunday--many tornadoes that destroyed homes--but then the sun came out. It was eery, but lovely.

It's positively humbling to share in the magnificence of nature -- knowing that we are a part of this greatness, not separated as we tend to think. The trees outside my window offer the most majestic view of golds, yellow/greens, rusts, reddish purples, as they do this time of the year. And I giggle, happy - actually feeling overjoyed that I get to see this happening. Nature is grand. Great post. Cheers!!

We had a beautiful cold front sunset and I was able to catch a wonderful picture, check it out; Sunset and Icicles

You are a very good photographer, I enjoyed browsing your site.

January Purge

I think it happens every Winter, the need to purge stuff.   It seems we spend years collecting stuff, holding on to stuff, only to find late...
