Sunset Through the Trees

I'm not down with the weather lingo, so when I wave my arms around and proclaim in a self-righteous tone that our spectacular sunsets are created by cold weather and inversion and various atmospheric conditions, just ignore me. I may not know what is causing our colorful skies these past few days, but I do know that the sunsets have been amazing. They occur right around dinnertime, when I'm hustling and bustling to get food on the table, so I'm never able to drive to a scenic spot where I can really capture their beauty. This quick snap out my upstairs window will have to do.

He spreads out the northern skies over empty space;
He suspends the earth over nothing.

Dinner last night: pork chops, stuffing, mushroom gravy

Beautiful picture. We've had some fabulous sunrises lately... prompting one of my daughters to ask me why the clouds were pink this morning.

That's a beautiful picture! We've been having some gorgeous sunsets too. All kinds of pink and blue in the's amazing.

That's a lovely sunset. I think the colours might be enhanced by moist cool air over relatively warm oceans but don't quote me on that!!

Do you see the Northern Lights in Alaska?

If that's "just" your view out of your window, I'd love to see the view from your scenic spot! Absolutely gorgeous!
