Of storms and sunsets

Nature is just so amazing - one day dark threatening storm clouds and rain; and the next more threatening clouds that become the canvas for a burning shimmering sunset.

Fiona and I often look out our windows and glass doors and see these scenes unfolding and just know how fortunate we are to live where we live - perched on an escarpment looking across the valley and mountain ranges. All photos are taken with the iPhone and unaltered.


  1. a place of such beauty... yes, you are lucky, but so are we - as you are a sharing spirit... i never ever tire of the images - they are breathtaking... can only imagine what they are like in person...

  2. these photos are ownderful and especially the last one! oh my god, beautiful!

  3. I'm not sure I'd ever get anything done other than look at the view!

  4. A view to die for Barry... but please don't.

  5. MD,VA,V & JM - when traveling for work-work as we are it it an indulgence of mine at times to post on home - almost a reminder to myself about the beauty to return to. And JM I intend that it refreshes me. F & I are aware of just how much we have with that view. VA - we have a home office for work-work which faces away from the view - good idea? V that last photo reminds me of your most recent post - not only shared interests but a shared sky. Go well. B

  6. Wonderful sky with amazing colors, I love this landscape, pretty picture. greetings.

  7. I never get tired of seeing those clouds over that huge mountain. What a view you have to enjoy daily!

  8. Gorgeous, Barry, especially the last one. I do love that iPhone.
