Splashes of Color from Across the Country


I don’t know about you, but it seems that no matter what type of day or week I’ve had, if I get to experience a beautiful sunset, everything is better.  The bad stuff fades away and the good stuff gets an exclamation point on the end.

What feelings do sunsets bring to you?  Relaxing?  Rejuvinating?  Sadness?  Awe?  Wonder?

After watching a sunset I am usually left with a mixture of feelings.  I’m once again impressed with the fact that no two sunset are alike.  Some feature yellows and oranges.  Others hit the blue and purple spectrum.  Often clouds are a beautiful partner to the closing moments of the day.

In addition to these feelings of awe and appreciation, I feel a little sad.  No matter how long you have been able to watch the sun set, it always seems too short a time to me.  I want it to last much longer to keep those good feelings.

As this week winds down, I want to share a few sunsets with you from different parts of the country.  Take a few minutes to let yourself relax and enjoy.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xocBUk1n9G8&feature=vmdshb

If you enjoy them, why don’t you share one of your favorites?  Where were you?   Was it a special day?  How did the sunset add to the day?

    Sunsets always leave me in awe of the Creator. Would love to witness the Northern Lights in person for the same reason.
