Whatever else one can say about your part of our world, one has to say you have some beautiful sunsets...and it's so nice that someone like yourself is there to capture them on digital!

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Re your question on Ocala: You are so right...the car is only temporarily "lost." It belongs to a large Lowe's store nearby!

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Re your question on Stone Creek: the resort pool is not used a lot - more so in the summer. But it is heated to 82 degrees.

This photo was taken about mid-morning. Us seniors are barely moving by then. And it was a coolish day.

Denise said...

The first comment, from Yogi, stole the word I was going to use: contemplative.

Malyss said...

I like "fresh" sunsets: the air is so pure when it's cold, the light so wonderful..

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes, Jack and Yogi are right! I felt the same way about the sky -- very contemplative and such a superb capture such a gorgeous scene! And much of that is due to your terrific composition -- as always! Have a wonderful weekend!

That picture is "like balm to the soul" :)
I hope one can say so in English too. It means a lot of healthy harmony :)

Thanks for visiting in my Kuusela. I remember when I was yuong we have aurora borealis more than now. Sometimes even in august evenings. Tomorrow I go to Spain spent my one week holiday. I hope I see there as beautiful as sunset like in your photo. ;-)

Beautiful sunset--all the way from pale blue down to hot orange. I really like the silhouetted tree against the sky, too.

Kerry said...

Beautiful colours.

Arija said...

Beautifully silhouetted foreground. Love the fence and the tree. The subset behind the tree has hung it with Christmas baubles, a magical effect.

The colors are the perfect backdrop for that beautiful pine tree.
