(Day 168) The Master's painting

I know I'm a bit early for Sunset Sunday but I couldn't let tonight's sky painting just pass by. Yesterday's ordeal (which in the grand scheme of things pales in comparison to what a lot of people elsewhere in the world would have endured) is now mostly relegated to the annals of 'travel trauma', but hopefully not to be repeated soon.

I had little opportunity today to make photos but I didn't have to fret. The sky tonight just washed away all other worldly thoughts.

(18-55mm  f5.6  1/250 sec  ISO200)

Warm Champagne skies ... so beautifull captured by you Rick! Thanks for sharing it with us! I haven't taken many photos of late. I hope to get out with Eddie this coming weekend... to a destination not yet known. I have missed having the time to create!

@Katherine - thanks for stopping by Katherine. I think the skies put on a real show here quite regularly from what I've seen so far. Hope you manage to get out and I look forward to seeing your photos.
