Evening Has Broken

May 26,2015




Each week, or at least every two weeks,  I try to come up with a "theme" for the "Wordless Wednesday" posts. This week it is "Sunsets".  I have given myself permission to enjoy the sunsets and seasons of Spring ( what's left of it) and Summer and that means not worrying or thinking about anything to do with posting on my blog. Secondly, it also means that I don't have as much contact with you.... and I miss that. Now, the dilemma that is presented is ...what to do? Perhaps a compromise.

The photos that I am posting are from my ..(gasp).. cell phone and for that I apologize. I have a weakness for sunsets and these made me feel very peaceful. I hope they do the same for you.




The Spring thaw left the river swollen and carried with it fallen trees and logs, like this one, still floating to shore. The sun was just about to dissolve into  the  water when I was able to capture it.




Another days- end that is not so much spectacular as  quietly peaceful..... I can live with that.




And one  more of the same location. It was this lone tree on a tiny island that caught my eye. Despite the turbulence in  area the little tree settled in and is quietly beginning to process another rebirth.

Have a wonderful week!
