A beautiful sky but what I can't stop looking at is that tree. So delicate against the copper.

I noticed lovely pink clouds last night but mine were over the Beer Store! Not as picturesque as your shot.

This is one of your best...the muted colors are soothing and you've composed it perfectly with the house and tree framing the shot!

the tree leaning over, along with the same lean to the hydro pole is very symbiotic.

I just love this photo! I like how you can see the buds on the tree, and it frames the picture. Great composition.

Dutchbaby said...

Great detail in the filigree of the trees.

Look at that sky. It's beautiful, and the tree against that sky makes the whole picture.

A lovely shot - that immediately reminds me of that Mel Gibson film Forever Young where he grows old quickly - it looks like the house in the final scenes where he lands the aeroplane.

Evocative shot.

Karen said...

Gorgeous, love the tree silhouette against that pastel sky!

Randy said...

Loving all of it. Great house!

Ms. Becky said...

Great sky and love the farm house. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Pat Tillett said...

Beautiful!
I'm sure that farmhouse has some interesting history to it...

Craver Vii said...

"Copper" is a perfect description. Beautiful capture.

whatandysees said...

HMmmm, now that's special!.... I know I could spend a while just looking at a view like that, not sure I could capture it as you have though, thanks for sharing your view!....:)

LauraX said...

exquisite color!

Dimple said...

This is gorgeous!

Mari said...

This is stunning! The tree, the farmhouse and the sunset are perfect. It should be hanging on a wall.

Carver said...

I love this shot. It's very peaceful looking to me.

I'm glad you mentioned the color issue with goldfinches. Maybe we do have them year round and I don't recognize them without the bright yellow which is what a look for. I'll have to start paying more attention to the many finches I have year round and see if some of them are actually goldfinches. I have a bird guide which will probably show the differences in how they look in the winter.

Franius said...

Wow, it seems to be in a western movie!

Genie said...

WOW! You got the perfect sky here today. These colors are gorgeous. Love the orange tone. Would love to have been sitting on the front porch looking at this gorgeous sky in person.

Stephanie said...

oh wow! My mouth dropped at the sight of this photo. Makes me want to sit on the veranda enjoying a cup of tea.

Pat said...

I like the coral-gray-coral look of the sunset....lovely!
