SKYWATCH FRIDAY


Coming home one day I saw the sun through the trees.  I was in the passenger seat as we drove along at 45 mph, and was totally mesmerized by the setting sun as it flashed through the trees.  I had dozens of spots and images of trees when I closed my eyes, but for a while I couldn't take my eyes off the setting sun.

Oh, don't stare too long...you'll go blind! Then that's all you'll see is spots. I know you knew that....just wanted to remind you. :) You have to be able to come here and blog or I'd miss you.

What an amazing sunset. That sun is huge poking itself through the leafless trees. You were in the perfect spot to take the picture...the passenger seat and NOT the driver's seat. Beautiful capture. genie
