Sometimes it is really amazing how the view from our home changes. I was sitting on the veranda, just enjoying the cooler air when I noticed how beautiful the clouds were over the mountains across the valley. The sun was setting, rain had ended a short time before and the light was fantastic. So, I ran inside to grab the camera and got this shot.
It was only a few minutes later that the clouds changed enough, so I thought I’d take a second picture.
The clouds were moving quickly and the shapes were changing. I kept taking pictures.
As the sun went down, the color of the clouds became more pink and apricot. Lovely! This camera has a hard time with light behind the trees, but I was able to get a hint of the beauty of this evening even though the trees are now just shadows on the camera. In real life you could still see the green of the trees.
Then this one. Stunning.
As the sun set, the trees are in total shadow, and the color in the sky continued, turning purple.
The colors are coming out in the trees too. These maple trees are nearer to the town, and are coming into a brilliant red.
I’ll have more as the autumn color progresses. Enjoy the views!
