Tarry a moment ...

Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden wand o'er the landscape;
Twinkling vapours arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together. 

(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

Rick this is a breathtaking shot, I'm sure by now you know how much I LOVE reflections as well as sunsets and this one by far has me at a loss for words... it's either this photo or the lengthy response to your comment on my blog which I just finished! ;-)

Seriously, this is stunning! I'm intoxicated by the beauty of God's handiwork and in your skills and talent of capturing it.

Rick,

You take some of the most beautiful sunset & silhouette shots of all! Absolutely beautiful! God makes them possible & you highlight His work!!!

You're very right about us being close to the day where ppl can't distinguish between right and wrong... I believe we're there... I'm always saying, forgive them, Lord, for they know not what they do... It's scary how people twist things to suit themselves, isn't it.

God bless you & may He have mercy on us all. =)
