the morning after














have you ever studied the sunset. i have seen many from mountain tops, highways and bedroom windows, yet never like i have here. the sky darkens before the sun melts into the the floor of the earth ,then a calmer soft sky starts to paint the ceiling and walls of my surroundings i wonder how many colors and brushes does this painter have. the sky reminds me of the color of peoples skin, especially their faces . i am sitting at a cafe now wanting more of last night. for the first time my camera has cheated me and i could not see everything. i want more but this time i will sit on the sand. hold his hand we will not chase the sun but instead let it find us...

*thank you paul for helping wi th the size

I love that you captured this sunset as it changed - so stunning, yet calming.

Amazing how we can never get enough of sunsets! Not only the vivid colors, but perhaps also the fleeting nature of them, never fails to awe.

Beautiful words to match those stunning shots.

Stunning pictures, which southwestern state did you visit yesterday where there are trees? Where the painted sunset looks like a movie for 45 minutes every night.

No prob with the size thing, great post.

i felt this way two days ago when calvin and i went driving into the sunset. we parked at a look out point far away from everything and just sat there for a long time in a very comfortable silence.
