Color In The Back Yard!

~View of yesterday's sunset from
my back yard!
~The death~bed of a day~~
How beautiful!!
~Phillip James Bailey

~"Come watch with me the shaft of fire that
glows in yonder west;.....
~Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Sonnet~Miracles

~"It was the cooling hour, just when the
rounded red sun sinks down behind
the azure hill, which then seems as
if the whole earth is bounded,
circling all nature,
hush'd, dim, and still.....
~Lord Byron

~"Softly the evening came. The sun from
the western horizon like a magician
extended his golden want o'er the
landscape; trinkling vapors arose;
and sky and water and forest
seemed all on fire at the touch,
and melted and mingled together."
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I have missed your pictures this last few days, this set is very nice indeed..
As for your question today over at my place concerning my new camera. Yes I am enjoying it, I am very pleased with some of the shots it as produced. I am finding it easier to use as well. I tend not to use the LCD but the view finder on this one. All in all I'm very happy with it. Thank you for asking :O)

Doesn't nature's colour palette provide us with some beautiful displays? How wonderful you were able to capture and share these ones.

I love the blackness and structure of the trees against the different colors of the sky. I am always so amazed at your incredible sense of color and precision with your photos.
