The Creator's signature

There are few scenes more glorious than a sunset. A sunset can gild any setting, even a suburban one. Scott started a Sunset Sunday theme one year ago - feel free to join in by posting a sunset on Sunday. Note that the sunset does not have to occur on the Sunday (as I mistakenly thought at first). I have 2 shots to share today - the first was made yesterday evening from our front lawn. The second was made 2 weeks ago as I was scurrying back to my vehicle to avoid a parking ticket.

May there be just enough clouds in your life to create a glorious sunset !  (author unknown)

WOW! I don't know if you saw my recent post about sunsets sometimes making me cry...I have a feeling that second sunset would have brought me to tears! Beautiful capture.

Ahhhh to see a beautiful sunset, even if it is through your lens, makes my heart full of gratitude. The beauty we are blessed with touches me immensely, I have another day to be grateful for and the sunsets remind me of this... I'm a bit odd, some people find this when they retire for the evening, for me it's in the Creators handiwork as you so eloquently put it. Fantastic shots Rick! Thank you. :-)
