surreal

To see the summer sky is poetry.
~Emily Dickinson

It would've been so hard to explain how the sky looked on this particular day... thank goodness for always having a camera in my bag.  Cheers to an excellent weekend for each of you.

  19. Everyone always takes photos of the "dramatic" sunsets, with brilliant streaks of orange or crimson or yellow. I love to see these photos of a subtle, gentler (though no less impressive) sunset. It looks so peaceful.
