What is it about a sunset that just makes one sit back and forget about the busyness of life for a few minutes? The past couple of weeks I have been home at sunset a few times and enjoyed getting to stand out on my veranda watching the sky change color. I am drawn to the veranda like an insect to a bare light bulb on a porch. I have stopped taking pictures. I am afraid the people living in buildings behind mine are going to think I am a peeping tom! But here are a few pictures of sunsets in various places taken in the past couple of years-okay, two places, my balcony and at the state park in my home town! (Although, the picture at the top left is from Nagano Ken!)

Isn't God's handiwork amazing? What a creative, artist God! What a color palette He uses!

Updated: I totally forgot to include a Hawaiian sunset!!

Izumi in June is spectacular.

Something the school teacher in my noticed was the change in location of the sun (more north vs more south)at Lake Herman between the first picture and the second picture because of the time of year. Very cool.

Thanks for sharing these! They are amazingly beautiful and SUCH a good reminder that we have a creator who cares for us -- enough to even provide the most wonderful sunsets!
