Cottage Sunset Series #1 - SkyWatch Friday

my soul is sunset dreaming
immersed in beauty
~Karen

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! Over the next few weeks I will feature the sunsets on my blog for - 
the SKYWATCH Friday photo meme.

The photos are not edited other than being cropped and/or resized.

  36. Karen .. I know that feeling .. although I can't see our sunsets the sunrises have the same affect on me .. I hold my breath at its beauty .. it sounds corny but it is so true .. if you don't feel in awe of it .. I think you are missing something in your soul !
