Last Night’s Show

Last night, just before 9 o’clock, my little family and I were outside, gathered around a fire, just finishing up with supper, and I happened to notice the sky.  What little bit of sky I could see from our little neck of the woods was a majestic blue with these bright, peachy pink clouds over beyond the trees.  So, being the lover of sunsets and sunrises that I am, I ventured over to the top of the driveway, where the trees start to separate and give way to the heavens.  There are no words that could have prepared me for what I saw next.

Sadly, I don’t think my camera quite captured the beauty that spread out before me and as for my photography skills, well let’s just put it this way.  After I took a few pictures, I just happened upon this groovy little setting on the camera entitled, get this, sunset.  Go figure!  We’ll just say that I don’t have an immediate future in photography.

I love this picture.  I actually shot all of the pictures from our neighbors yard, sitting just below their deck in the grass.  At this point, I had the whole gang over there with me watching this glorious sight unfold.  I sure do hope the neighbors don’t mind that we were in their yard enjoying their awesome view.

This little dog just happened to appear at one point while we were sitting there watching all the colors and the ever-changing clouds.  I thought he was awful cute.

This was one of the last shots I got before we wandered back over to our fire pit to roast some marshmallows and have some S’More’s.  I had just found the sunset setting on the camera at this point.  Made me wanna kick myself for not knowing I had this setting from start to finish in my little impromptu photography session.

Seeing this absolutely marvelous sight unfold before my eyes last night reminded me of just how truly blessed I am.
