The Sunset That Wouldn't Quit

On April 30,I realized that we were in for a very pretty sunset,so off to the lake I went.
I took pictures with my camera,but also captured some with my iPhone.
Today I am sharing just the iPhone shots

This was the start of some amazing beauty.

This was the sunset that wouldn't quit.It just kept on getting better and better.
You can see our local lake still had some ice on it that day,but the colours of the sunset were so pretty,I hardly noticed the ice.

Here you can see in those patches of open water how the colors were reflected in the lake.
This was one of those evenings where the beauty was unbelievable.

I thought that the event was over so I headed for home,but looking in my rearview mirror,I realized that it was far from over.

I was getting back into town and even though I now had buildings in the shot,I had to capture just one more picture of that gorgeous sky.
Shortly after this the colour faded and the beauty was gone for another day.

This was one of those times when I was happy that I followed my instincts and went out to see the sunset.

The day is done,the sun has set,yet light still tints the sky;
My heart stands still in reverence,for God is passing by.
