Rurality: Sunsets and a Fawn

Last Saturday evening Hubby came inside and said the clouds were pretty and he thought I might want to take a picture. A lovely sky greeted me as I looked down my driveway.

It was only about a minute later that the pastel sky and clouds turned a deeper blue.

I always try to remember to turn around when sky watching and as I did the moon was already shining high in the sky.

The next afternoon as I was driving to see my Stepdad for Father's Day I spied a doe and her fawn. I knew I was too far away to capture any award winning photo but I had to capture the moment anyway. Moments like this are why I love living in the country!

Don't you just LOVE when your hubby comes to tell you when there is a great picture opportunity? I do! I love that he has become involved in something I love, and he loves it, too!

So glad you took that deer picture, even though you don't think it's worth an award. They are beautiful just like you captured them!

Your photos are superb Carletta, enjoyed the quote you added to the moon and the fawn shot was a beauty. It must be wonderful to live out in the country. I hope we can do that one day.

Wishing you a great day,

That one sky photo looks like angel wings in the clouds! Beautiful shots!

Carletta said...

PAT: I thought the same thing and was going to say something but people don't always see the same things. Glad you saw it too.

Your husband's alerting you to the splendid sky was such a sweet gesture!

I looked at your images and was touched by the similarities of the colors of our posts.
