A Great Sunset

I have been waiting for a great Sunset to appear for a month.  We have had plenty of beautiful Sunrises, but Mother Nature would blow all the evening clouds away and refuse to let the Sunset shine in all its glory.  Last night the sun lit up the clouds in every direction and surrounded my yard with glorious beauty and color.  Such a thrill.

I really can’t give the glory of such beauty to Mother Nature – we all know God created the beauty of this world.

Galveston, Texas

Last week my daughter, granddaughter and I went to Galveston, Texas for 5 days.  I had not stood on any beach for years  – and I missed the beach.  These pictures are from one morning when the sunrise was magnificent.  When I zoomed in on distant objects the color was spectacular.
