Last Night, Looking West



Leaning out the living room window, looking west, if one holds the camera just right, it's possible to get a photograph with no power poles, wires or other houses. The setting sun turns the neighborhood kentia palms, giant bamboo, eucalyptus, jacaranda and Torrey pine trees into silhouettes against a colorful sky. The sun is setting noticeably farther south now, as the days continue to shorten.

That struck a nerve when you said as the days shorten...as they always do, but that doesn't mean I have to like it!

Your shot reminds me of the sunsets in Florida, oh how I miss...as I'm sitting here waiting for a severe thunderstorm to bare down on me with tornado watches all around...scary!!!
