Sunset Seasons

One of the biggest perks of our country living are the sunsets, and we have beauties all year long.
This one was taken in late December.
Here's one from late summer.  The flash illuminates alfalfa blooms.  Click to enlarge, and you may be able to distinguish Boss and Mischief in the pasture. (Boss's ears are silhouettes on the horizon.)

  1. It looks as if Mischief is enjoying the sunset as well. The colors in the winter photo are marvelous.

  2. I think Boss was wondering what you were up to. He's very alert, maybe there was a treat in the offing. Great shots.

  10. Fantastic shots, Janie! Such stunning colors! And, of course, my favorite -- bare trees silhouetted against the lovely skies! So picturesque! Have a great weekend, stay warm! Give Daisy a hug from Sam, Mojo and me -- oh, and Mischief, too, of course!!

  19. we do have lovely sunsets--and I think you are currently locked in a deep freeze. Mighty cold at your end of the state :)

  20. What an awesome comparison of summer and winter skies ... Each one with its own mood. Winter with crisp clarity and cold color. Summer hazy and restful. I like both!
