The Heavens Declare…...

It seems that sunsets are always a favourite. 
I have not been as diligent as I should be in getting out to capture these spectacle,but I did  go out in October and was treated to a beautiful sunset.
Here are a few images from that evening.

The evening started out fairly slowly and I thought that perhaps I had spent this time in vain.Here is how I first saw the setting sun,pretty, but not spectacular.

I turned around and looked to the east,and saw the sky tinged a soft shade of pink.
I love those soft colours almost as much as a vivid sunset.

Slowly the sun dropped down below the horizon.
I found a spot with a little tree to use as a foreground.

As the sun dropped even further,the whole sky turned a deep orange.
I was reminded again that when God puts the world to sleep,He does in a spectacular fashion.

Starting down the road to go home,I was once again greeted with this soft colour in the east.softer and more subdued,but equally beautiful.


Thought for today:
The heavens declare the glory of God;the skies proclaim the work of His hands.
Psalm 19:1

  5. Beautiful! Our blogs today are very similar! It is harder than one might think to get good sunset pictures. There are the mountains, trees, buildings, wires. We have to drive and drive.

  12. Sunrises and sunsets often have colors that only God would have thought of putting together. He's the Supreme Artist, and you've captured some of His work beautifully. And you've provided the perfect scripture to go along with these images.
