The Master's Brush

The day I tire of sunsets will be the day I tire of life.

To watch a sunset evolve over the evening is to watch a master painter at work. The constantly changing light, colour, and shapes make for an awe-some display. No two moments seem the same. I was able to replenish my supply of sunset shots one evening last week while we enjoyed some 'down time' with family.

While technically it's no longer Sunday here, it's still Sunday out west where Scott initiated the Sunset Sunday theme.

[now that I'm back in blogland I shall be around to visit you this week]

Rick my friend, you've been missed. Welcome back.

I was on my way to bed (way too many late nights, or should I say early mornings lately!) and I noticed the most magnificent sunset on my dashboard, this is worth staying up for! I love this shot, the color is stunning, perfect silhouettes, and the sky is amazing, totally utterly amazing.

Awe-some is 100% right!

Have a wonderful week!

I always enjoy photographing the sky, be it sun rise,sunset, or just the clouds and formations they make, and as you say, its forever changing, you cannot capture it again if you miss a shot.
Really love this capture Rick, fantastic.

Great title today, and awesome photo to go with it. Sunsets are the best, but sunrises are better``` you're given another day!!

Hi Rick, good to see you again. How you doin'?

Gorgeous sunset picture, your photography skill is really excellent.

I got 2 dessert recipes for you @ coconut lime square & pineapple coconut bars. Both are easy to make and addictive. Hope you'll like it.

Have a nice day, warm regards.

Welcome back Rick. This is a spectacular sunset. I like the contrast of black against the orange. I must link up with Sunset Sunday. Have a great week.
