A beautiful sunset

We had this most beautiful sunset the other night. Shooter went outside to put something in the trash can and pick up the mail and then came to get me so I could snap a few pictures.




Luckily enough, we live on a hill and I can get really good pictures of the sunrises and the sunsets around here. They are my most favorite thing to take pictures of.



To me, it's like God getting to play with a bunch of watercolors and using the clouds as his canvas. I feel closer to God when I'm in nature, admiring his creations.



The colors were amazing. Such bright oranges against the brilliant blue sky.


Transitioning to the reddish orange .....



What a beautiful end to a pretty nice day.

Wow, those are gorgeous! I'm glad you had a chance to enjoy them. I agree, I always feel closer to God when He displays wonderfulness (is that word?) like that too.

It's during sunsets when I really feel I "get" God, if that makes sense. I'm always amazed during a beautiful scene like those you captured. Love those colors!

Oh, ya'll are so sweet. I was lucky to have caught it at the right time. About 5 min after I got these pics the sky colors muted and they weren't nearly as pretty.

When you look around our world and see the beauty, how can you not know that there is a God.

GORGEOUS, BEAUTIFUL PICTURES and I RARELY comment on picture posts!

great shots! That's my favorite time of day. When the sun is just setting and all the trees and buildings are silhouetted. The sky these vibrant colors. You captured it beautifully
