End of the week

As I was cleaning up the kitchen I noticed a glow outside. The sky was gorgeous. After a few days of gray & gloom this was a wonderful way to end the day #gratitude The day lily is almost ready to burst open Riding into the sunset. What a view the passengers must have!

The other night, after a day of thunderstorms and intense rains I was cleaning the kitchen up from dinner. I noticed the dining area was full of a golden glow. I grabbed the camera and went running outside. The dish cloth was on the table, a trail of water was on the floor, the sink was full of half washed dishes. My family is used to this by now. Ree came running out the door after me not knowing what "neat" thing I was going to see but she has learned that when I drop everything, grab the camera and head out the door there is something pretty good.

The sunset was amazing. Just what we needed to see after days of gray and gloom. While it wasn't particularly bright, it had a soft beauty about it. I think it's because of the way the clouds were breaking. And the blue of the sky behind them was stunning. I couldn't quite capture the color. 

Just as we were getting ready to head in the house we heard a plane taking off...we live just a few miles from the airport and our house is in a flight path, so we have planes flying very low over our house many times a day. I captured this shot as they flew off into the sunset. What a view they must have had!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
