Cottage Sunset Series #2 - Sky Watch Friday/Scenic Sunday


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.
