It is the last day of April,2015.The good news is that,God willing,another day will dawn tomorrow and we can start all over again.May means that summer is that much closer and in my part of the world,the flowers will soon be in full bloom.
To bid farewell to April,I want to show you a sunset,as I witnessed it over-looking Lake Minniwasta.
At first it looked like the sunset would not be all that great.A heavy band of clouds covered the sun.
I still liked the way the lake looked.
As the sun dropped lower,it reappeared below the clouds and now the lake turned a soft shade of purple.
I sat there and waited,for that is what one must do to get those wonderful sunset photos.
The water had,by now changed color again.The orange glow caused the lake to have this gorgeous,rich orange tone to it.
Watching as the sun dropped even lower,it made a golden path across the lake.At just the right moment three Common Loons swam through this area.As an added bonus,I heard them calling in that beautiful,almost mournful call.I did'nt think the evening could be any better.
One final picture before the sun dropped below the horizon.I am very pleased with how this one turned out.The clouds painted a lovely scene in the sky.
An evening that at first didn't look like it would yield much beauty,turned out to be spectacular.
I do believe I have used this quote before,but it seems to be appropriate for this post.
A birth certificate shows we were born,
A death certificate shows we died,
But photographs show we lived.
