Spectacular Sunset

As I was out driving around the countryside the other day,I witnessed one of the most spectacular sunsets I have seen in a very long time.
I know each sunset is pretty in it's own way,but this one took my breath away.


I could have filled this post with a multitude of pictures,but limited it to my usual five.

The evening started out with a lovely sky,filled with just the right amount of clouds.


As the sun went down,the sky began to fill with beauty.


Driving along,I spotted this old house and knew that it would make a perfect spot for some more pictures.


What an amazing sight to witness.


The final show was as beautiful as the beginning.I had driven quite a few miles before this scene presented itself.

I have not added to the colours in any way. Actually these pictures are how they came out of my camera.


I believe that if a sunset or sunrise only happened every five to ten years,we would all stop what we were doing and watch this scene unfold. The question I have then is,why don't we take note of these displays of beauty more often?
God has the BEST way of saying good-night to the world.

  6. You are right, Ruth, thee are stunning! My very favorite is the third with the orange and the house. You can even see the halo around the sun. I Totally agree...if the sun hardly ever set, we would all gather like it was the Northern Lights.

  20. Gorgeous images, Ruth. I don't know why more people don't notice sunsets. I've had many people tell me I must live where there are more sunsets than where they live, but I doubt that very much. I'm glad you take the tome to see and photograph them!

  21. I'm sorry you felt it necessary to limit yourself to five photos. Each of these is indeed beautiful, and each is more spectacular than the previous one.
