Sunset

"Give me the splendid silent sun at sunset." - Walt Whitman

"Clouds come floating into my life....to add color to my sunset sky." - Rabindranath Tagore

I took these last week while standing on my back deck. The first was looking west before sunset. Beyond the trees the sun filtering through the clouds looked like a giant glowing lamppost. The bottom image showing the soft pink and purple hues of the clouds was taken facing north.

Linking to Skywatch.
