Sunset in Winter & Share the LOVE - Blog Hop


Tonight at sunset walking on the snowy road,
my shoes crunching on the frozen gravel, first


through the woods, then out into the open fields
past a couple of trailers and some pickup trucks, I stop
 

and look at the sky. Suddenly: orange, red, pink, blue,
green, purple, yellow, gray, all at once and everywhere.


I pause in this moment at the beginning of my old age
and I say a prayer of gratitude for getting to this evening
 


a prayer for being here, today, now, alive
in this life, in this evening, under this sky.

  5. These photos are awsome, love the red berries. The Sunset en magnificent Sky are just breath-taking. I wish I could take such beautiful Sunset photos, but my skills are insufficient :( So I will practice more.

    1. Thank you Barbara! I was lucky to be at the right place in the right time, to capture the beautiful scenere ... I have a Canon Ixus Point and Shoot, so I cannot really adjust any settings - but I lowered the camera to the level of the snow to get a perspective, focusing to the small leaves, and filling the rest of the "canvas" with the sunset.

    1. Tak Hans - denne post er den del af Winter Nurture Photography, så disse billeder er de sidste winterbilleder på bloggen - de er taget et par måneder siden. Der er stadig lidt sne hist og pist - is på søerne er ved at smelte, og foråret er på vej.
