Looking Back To March/ Sky Watch

This tree is  sure to be cut down soon - it's standing smack dab in the middle of what will soon be a housing development. Horses used to roam this property, and the residents of the now ramshackle home behind where I was standing must have seen many beautiful sunsets when they lived there.

Gwyn said...

Wow, what a stunning shot. It would be beautiful on my wall.:)

Paulie said...

Beautiful! Maybe they will build around the tree and make it a central focus point?

Always so sad to see beautiful land turned into cement and houses. I suppose we are calling this progress. How is the housing market there? MB

Loved the corduroy yesterday.
I'm invariably sad when we encroach on Nature. It may not be as blatant in the vast North American expanses as it is in cramped Europe but still...

MB,

Apparently house prices went down slightly for a while but are now going up again. The Canadian economy was not hit as badly by the recession as the U.S. was.

So sad. I am glad that you were able to enjoy and share this beautiful sky with us.

It's a pity that this tree has to be cut down. I hope that they would build around it instead.

Happy Easter.

What a shame to think that wonderful view will soon be obscured by houses.

Carver said...

That's a gorgeous sunset and I love the bare tree. Such a shame that it will be cut down for development but will live on in your photographs.

It doesn't get any prettier! A masterpiece.

Wow, what a colorful sky.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, I'm so glad you caught this before it is built up and over!!! Such gorgeous, rich colors! Picture perfect it is indeed! Wishing you a very Happy Easter Weekend!

Pam said...

Your sunset photos is splendid but its sad to see so much land lost to over development.

whatandysees said...

Love your fiery sky!.... they can't build over that!...:)

Spiderdama said...

Beautiful colors of that sky!
Wish you a Happy Easter

hetty said...

A beautiful sunset. Poor tree! Maybe if interest rates go really high, no one will be able to afford those houses and the tree can stay - silly me. Of course that won't happen.

Carletta said...

Stunning!
Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter!

Jacob said...

Such a shame that you're going to lose this view! That ain't what I call "progress"!

DrillerAA09 said...

I don't think I'm going to see a better photo than this one. Extraordinary!

Wren said...

What a shame, it seems to belong just where it is. Your photo is lovely, beautiful color and a nicely balanced scene. I can feel the warmth of the setting sun.

Tara R. said...

Gorgeous sunset! Hopefully a new homeowner will have this evening show to enjoy.

George said...

I'm sorry to hear that this beautiful tree is about to be cut down. I imagine that soon there will be so many buildings that the sunset will be blocked. What a shame.

Colin Campbell said...

Lovely. Have a great holiday.

Ebie said...

Blazing skies! I'd sit there watching till the sun goes to sleep! Picture postcard shot!

HalfCrazy said...

Great to have something to remember you by!

Good shot.

Ann said...

In New Zealand, if a tree is more than 6 meters tall, you can't cut it. The developer will just have to build around it.

and they just keep on building and building.........

Great shot though, shame they have to cut the tree down.

Rose said...

This is a stunning photo...it could not be any better.

Karine said...

That view is absolutely gorgeous and it's scandalous to think that anyone would want to build over it...

syel said...

that's a breath taking sunset! i hope they would preserve the tree. such a shame not too see beautiful sunsets like this in the near future.
