Cottage Sunset Series #3

Click the pic to enlarge
On our recent vacation at the lake, I sat on the elevated deck of the cottage and watched the sun set every evening. The beauty of the sky held me in awe from the beginning of the sunset until dark.

I watched and photographed from the same vantage point each night. It was never boring!

I LOVE this one! Looks like the sky is trying to tell the secret, by showing the sun through the hole, but the message is spreading around like reflections ;) Beautiful.
