What a Sunset!

We live on the east side of the highway,

with a large field across the highway in the west.

We’ve practically had large billowing clouds almost daily for several weeks.

Most lingered into the evening.

They constantly changed shapes and reflected the colors.

The changing colors put on a dramatic show.

I took all these (and more) pictures from our front yard.

I wonder what to expect this evening.

Sunset Variations

These pictures were taken 7:30 p.m. from my chair by the living room window.

I couldn’t have planned it better to capture the last light of the day.

A little more light changed the atmosphere of the evening.

The sun continued to sink  in the west,

and the colors to darken.

I stayed in my chair by the window.

The sun highlighted the clouds in the west.

The end of the day approached, and I sat in my chair watching its progression.

I wonder what tomorrow’s sunset will bring.

The Clouds Continued

This is the second blog of the clouds that were just east and south of our house.

I wonder if the clouds had conversations while they formed.

They grew/enlarged quickly, changing almost constantly.

I was alone and in constant “awe” of the event.

Now I wonder just how many different kinds of spirits it took for this display?

I hope I’m invited to the next meeting of the cloud spirits.

Clouds to Admire

I went out in the backyard yesterday afternoon for a walk around the yard.

I didn’t expect to see mountains of clouds. Some of the clouds were partially hidden behind trees in the east and south.

The clouds continued to grow and expand.

 Some of the clouds were only in the south and southeast.

It almost felt like they would pass over me, low enough for me to touch or disappear into.

It would’ve been nice if I’d been out watching the clouds approach and forming.

Being outside, alone, it almost felt like I was in them. Like they were a gift.

Evening Light

Our days have been cloudy for what seems like a long time…

which made this sunset even more attractive …

It was such an unusual sunset with such unusual shapes and colors.

Reflections

I can’t resist the reflections and

the distortion of water drops

in their surroundings.
