Skywatch Friday - Peaceful and Still





As this sunset appeared last week song lyrics came to mind.

"The sky's all on fire,
And the night's slowly fading
Peaceful and still ends the day.

Here comes that big ol' prairie moon rising
Shining down bright as can be
The wind in the sage sounds like heaven singing
A song of Wyoming for me
A song of Wyoming for me."

~~from Song of Wyoming, by Kent Lewis

It's been a few years since I've seen a Wyoming sunset. Oregon sunsets can surprise, too. This timely vision last week worked its magic on me as it colored the heavens with various pastels, hanging a bright bold moon in the middle of it all. Lovely. Just lovely.

That's a beautiful sunset. I enjoyed the lyrics, too, Cherie. I remember John Denver sang that one, and I just loved it. It's a wondeful song for slowing down.

Those colors always amaze me. Why pink and blue? And then when I think of all the pink and blue combinations we use, it makes me wonder even more.

Nature sure has a way of making us say awe!

As usual, great photos Cherie!

Good sunsets and it´s good to have some silhouettes too. Love the lyrics quote too.

The third pic could have been without that tiny black shape in the corner.
