I got my camera back - no major problems (*big sigh of relief*) and they were able to download my pictures of the most amazing sunset I have ever witnessed. (* bigger sigh of relief*)
I stood outside in my front yard and literally shot for about 15 minutes as the sky constantly changed color and the clouds thickened and moved all around me. To give you some idea of the immensity of this display of color, the evergreen tree is at least 35 feet tall, and is on a hill. You can see our neighbor's house in one picture, and the tree is a bit further down the hill while their house sits at the top of the hill.
I cannot describe to you the incredible sense of the magnificent glory of my Creator that this evening gave me. My senses were so filled with the brilliance of color and the immensity of the sky that I quite simply could not continue to take pictures even though the sunset had not completed its show. I was literally overwhelmed deep in my very being. I have never had that sensation before...
I absolutely am painting - but I just HAD to share these pictures with you. I have not altered or touched the photos in any way other than to put my signature on them. I hope the colors show on your monitor even half the intensity of the photos.
