Stunning picture Andrea!  I like the the sillouette of the trees provided by the sunset!

Hi Andrea ~ Worth the wait! It's gorgeous.  I got a huge charge out of Michael's comment - too funny.

I like the pinks and purples. I'm a big fan of sunsets anyway. I'm glad the glitch is fixed. I still have to post my blogs for the day!  =)

Andrea that is a beautiful shot.  I have not seen a red sky lately up here in Middletown.  It is amazing that we are not that far apart, but how things can be so different.

Whew, I was so relieved that AR's hitch in their gitalong was fixed. I was waiting since I took this to post today on Wordless Wednesday. And to those of you who saw the last post, yes, it was very fresh of me... thank you for looking at the REAL photo!

Myrl, I really think this is my best sunset so far. I didn't change a thing, just gave it to you like I took it! Thank you!

Michael, now THAT is a great comment! LOL, thank you!

Liz, thank you so much! And I too like Michael's comment. We are showing our age here, LOL.

Marchel, thank you so much! I am very happy with this one, which is unusual for me.

Lisa, yes, I was so excited when I could post pictures. God for it! And thank you.

Konnie, well thank you! You must have read my previous blog... :D

George, funny about that. I have the most amazing sunsets and sunrises here, always stunning. I don't know why that is though. Thank you!

Hi Andrea-So glad you got that hitch fixed and you were right a beautiful pic indeed. Your comment on Pat's blog made me LOL. You must of missed the intro to the new beau. Been a couple weeks ago, <BIG SMILE>

Posted by Sharon Lee, Retired and loving life (Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance) over 9 years ago

I'm still scared!

But that is a beautiful picture despite your spooky description yesterday!!!

Posted by Craig Rutman, Raleigh, Cary, Apex area Realtor (Helping people in transition) over 9 years ago

Janna, aww.. shucks, thank you so much! I am so happy that you enjoy my pictures.

Teresa, you are very welcome! And thank you for taking the time to look and comment!

Brenda, this was a very special sunset I thought. Thank you!

Mike, this photo is as it came from the camera, no changes or tweaks. How could I improve on Mother Nature? Thank you!

Sally, I am blushing... thank you so much! I often look at your photos (and Mikes, and so many others) and think... wow, if only I lived in a place like that, taking pictures for them is like shooting fish in a barrel.. ) but seriously, when you who have taken so many beautiful photos give me such compliments it means a great deal to me.

Sharon, LOL, I put another comment there. And thank you! I feel much better now that the hitch is fixed.

Craig, LOL, thank you. It is a bit other worldly looking... actually this photo was taken on my last trip to Anteres....:D

Hi Andrea-I am glad they got it fixed too as I love seeing your pics but your comments are also a lot of fun.  I did see your second comment to Pat K.  Too funny. 

P.S. I did what you demanded<SMILE> and posted more pics from my trip. Good I think but not quite as good as the previous ones.I still have more but I am headed out Sat to Michigan to my nieces graduation so the link below may be the last one I do before I go as I won't be back til late Monday. I could put a comment on the top letting folks know that if I post another before I go. Have a great day my friend. <WARM SMILE>

Andrea - It's just like I pictured :-) Well worth the wait!

I'm a big fan of pictures with trees in them (I have a degree in forestry), especially when the tree is silhouetted.

Posted by Russel Ray, San Diego Business & Marketing Consultant & Photographer (Russel Ray) over 9 years ago

Hi Debi, thank you! I thought it was wonderful, pretty different looking.

Mike, LOL, then I did a good job with the description!

Russel, I am impressed, a degree in forestry! Way to go! Thank you so much.
