Glowing ‘O’range for Ed’s Sunday Stills

Our Florida sunset on Monday evening was just too beautiful not to share, and Ed’s Sunday Stills Challenge ‘The letter O”Β  is the perfect opportunity.

I was preparing dinner when happening to glance out of the window, I saw this.

It looked really promising, so the cooking had to wait for a while, as I’m a real sucker for a good sunset.

I really wish those houses weren’t on the other side of the lake, but I suppose the people have to live somewhere.

A few minutes later, it looked as though they were in the midst of a raging inferno.

Mother nature really does have the best shades of ‘O’range, doesn’t she?

Wishing you all a bright and happy weekend.

  1. Your opening statement reminds me of a conversation my mother had with my sister many years ago as she stood washing dishes. My mother peeked inside to tell her to come see the sunset with us. My sister’s reply … “Not now. I’m washing dishes.” … My mother’s reply (in her wisdom) … “Those damned dishes are always going to be there, the sun is going down fast. Come enjoy it while you can.”

    We should all take time to enjoy the sunset whenever we can. Lucky for us, you’ve shared yours and it is spectacular. πŸ™‚

  2. Such a gorgeous sunset you caught there. Mother Nature has been outdoing herself here on our coast, too. Though I supposed it has something to do with the bad air advisory. My sinuses are confirming the bad air bit.

  3. What a stunning sunset Sylvia. So dramatic. It always amazes me at what mother nature can get away with in the way of vivid colours but I can’t when I try and put paint on paper. I’m glad you had your camera handy to share this! Beautiful! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Adrian. I know, Mother nature makes it look so easy. I’m trying to do a Venice sunset for my next painting. I’m finding it really difficult to make it look anything like the real thing. πŸ˜‰
