Amazing Display

The past two days have been gray, wet and foggy which has done nothing to enhance our colorless November scenery.

Hubby and I were sitting at the kitchen table having brunch this morning and looking out at the stark and bare trees at the edge of the woods to our south.

We commented that this time of year between the brilliant colors of autumn and the sparkling blanket of winter's snow is certainly dreary and drab.

Our Sunday was winding down toward dusk when Papa Pea called to me, "You've got to come see this sunset!"

I grabbed my camera and . . . WOW!


This is what we saw, straight out of the camera.  Not much drab and dingy in that scene, is there?

Glorious!
We're in the midst of some violent storms. I hope it passes quickly!

Beautiful colors.

Carolyn said...

Very wonderful ending to any day! Rhiannon comes in the house yelling "Pink Sky!!" when the sunset (or what we can see of it over the hills) looks like that.

Lisa said...

Stunningly beautiful sky! You and your camera did a fantastic job of capturing the beauty.

Sue - Hoping your stormy weather is gone now . . . and you didn't sustain any damage! "The Gales of November," eh?

Mama Pea said...

DFW - November always seems to bring us our most spectacular sunsets! Maybe to make up for the drab landscape?

Mama Pea said...

Sparkless - The weather forecast said we'd have a sunny day today . . . but so far, cloudy and lazy little snowflakes coming down.

Mama Pea said...

Constance - I knew by the excitement in my husband's voice, I should grab my camera. And it was worth it!

Mama Pea said...

Beth - The "wow" factor was added to by how fast the clouds were moving. There must have been some strong winds way up there in the atmosphere.

Mama Pea said...

Thanks, TL!

Mama Pea said...

Kristina - That they were!

Mama Pea said...

Carolyn - Have you taught her "Red sky in morning, sailors take warming; red sky at night, sailor's delight" yet?

Mama Pea said...

Lisa - Thank you! I wouldn't have noticed it if hubby hadn't alerted me to it.

Sandy said...

Spectacular sunset!!!

Susan said...

Oh my gosh! That is the most beautiful sunset! Nature is so amazing.

Mama Pea said...

Sandy - We just had another pretty one tonight, but not quite as colorful.

Mama Pea said...

Susan - Even though humans try to duplicate the colors in nature, we can never do quite as well!

LindaCO said...

Stunning! We are getting some similar sunrises and sunsets here on the farm, and it always takes my breath away!

LindaCO - Hubby's office is upstairs and he faces west when sitting at his desk so he often sees purdy sunsets!

Mama Pea said...

judy - You'll have to make the effort to get out and see the sunsets by you! I'll bet you could see some spectacular ones, too.

Mama Pea said...

Stephanie - Because of heavy woods to our east, we don't see any sunrises from our property here. As gorgeous as sunsets are, I'm a morning person and would enjoy the sunrises more!
