    Like sunsets? Feel the need to be humbled by nature?

    Seeing as I am usually asleep at sunrise, sunsets get my attention. We had strong storms move through our area today. The temperature went from 82 to 60 in an hour. Just as the sun set, there was a break in the clouds. This was taken by our friend (who knows all things photography, mainly when a good picture may present itself) in her back yard in Salisbury Beach.

    What a glorious picture! I looks like a painting by one of the old masters. Thank you so very much for sharing the beauty of the earth, with the sun shining a promise of peace after the storm.

    Really nice. Makes me think of some of the Thomas Kincaid stuff.

    That's an amazing shot. That photo looks like a painting that would look just like a photo if it were painted.

    I love the beauty of nature.
    AZ sunsets like this one are not uncommon. I took this picture with my iPhone 7 Plus.

    Beautiful picture. God is a master painter and his works can be viewed daily.
    I find supremely ironic that God in his wisdom and grace has given man freedom of choice bounded by 10 simple rules. Man in his finite wisdom has created millions of rules to limit freedom of choice and personal responsibility of man.

    I'm up in Vermont in the Northeast Kingdom for an annual fundraiser for a local Rescue and an organization that is trying to eradicate cancer in dogs. The event is held at Dog Mountain in St.Johnsbury. This is Gods country up here and everywhere you look you can see Him. I looked up last night and saw this.

    Those are always the best. A thin layer of clouds that peters out about 30mi distant, when the sun goes low enough to put the wonderful late-afternoon light onto the underside. Amazing colors.
