Sunset - September 1

The first sunset of September was magnificent, a real whopper, and wrapped up in my favorite old shawl, watching from the edge of the western hill, I remembered why I have always loved autumn so much.

There was a small measure of comfort and happiness in knowing that I stood at this place in the field last year at this time and watched an equally perfect sunset paint the Lanark horizon.

It was an astonishing evening and one replete with splendor. Everything from the good dark earth under my feet to the fiery setting sun and the indigo clouds overhead was chock full of dazzling color and shot with gold. Wow....

I'm running out of superlatives to use for your photographs:) I love sunrises and sunsets and this is a lovely one with the drama of the dark clouds above the setting sun.
