I took this photo on January 11th. I happened to be walking from the house to the Nest, looked out across our two acres and saw this. Sunset was almost over.....but it was beautiful nonetheless. I ran and got my camera, hoping to get a photo. Sometimes these gorgeous happenings are over instantly, but I managed to get this shot. It shall be one of my favorites taken in my back yard.
Love the sunset....love the trees. For many years I have loved seeing trees in contrast to the sky. I'm known to say over and over that "trees are nature's version of lace." Can you see that? Well, if you can...thank you. If you can't...well look a little closer at the trees near you just about any time of day, but especially in the evening....see lace now? Enjoy your backyard sunsets whenever possible and take care. Pat
PS. I remember when I got my first pair of glasses as a small child. Up until that moment, I thought trees were made of one big green shape....I had no idea there were millions of tiny leaves on each tree. I've never gotten over that revelation!!
