Sunset on the Mississippi River: Part II

I guess the part I like about taking sunsets at the Mississippi River is that I have never taken the same one twice. They are all different, each having its own identity, it own characteristics. Some days there are no clouds, some days the sky is boiling with them. The water's up, the water's down. Boats come and go.
I wish you could have been with me the day I took the bottom photo. It looked like giant spotlights were situated behind the bridges sending brilliant orange colors into the sky. It was if God was saying, "Ta Da!" And I timed it. That one little scene was gone in less than a minute. I thanked God right then that day for the show He put on, it seemed, just for me. I am glad I can share it with you.
Go watch a sunset today — they are free, yet priceless.


  1. Lovely... I have a sunset and a sunrise picture I posted on my blog today. I love both, particularly if they're on water.

  2. Just wonderful photos....I also particularly love the photo you use as a header...the storm brewing and the lightning strike are awesome...I need to go down to Petersen's and see if you have it for sale there. That is one I'd like to have on display here at home.

    Your blog gets better by the day as you build it up with your outstanding photos. Thanks for sharing the beauty you capture of our area, a/k/a "God's Country".
