Sunset in Shades of Blue

Sunday October 25,I decided it was time to pay a visit to Lake Minniwasta.
As most of you know,I had surgery in late September,so I had not been out much with my camera and was missing that. It was the perfect evening to sit at the lake,watching the sunset.


Many sunsets are rich in warm colors of gold,orange and yellow,but this one was different.
The sky was beautiful in varying shade of blue with some hints of yellow and later a few pinks.
 

The soft reflections in the lake were as pretty as the sky.


As the sun slowly set behind the clouds,the edges of some of those clouds were tinted in a soft pink color.

I love the many shades of blue and a few pinks in this picture.

One last look at the lake showed even softer colors in the reflections.

When the sun finally set,I looked at the time and realized that I had just spent almost three hours watching this spectacle we call a sunset.By this time I was chilly,but my heart was full of peace and joy. Once again,I had found peace and contentment by being surrounded by nature and being in touch with my God.I went home,praising God for the beauty of creation and the peace that He alone can give.
