2. Thanks, my dear boston bean!

Yeah, the cloud formation in that first one really amazed me!

3. My dear CaliforniaPeggy!!! Beautiful pictures!!! I especially love the odd formation in the center..

I KNOW you're a sunset lover. Have you ever been to Arizona? They're one of our secret treasures (well,
not so secret, I guess).

The pinks and lavenders and oranges and purples that are the mainstays of much Southwestern art can
be seen almost NIGHTLY in our sunsets. Truly breathtaking and, dare I say it, "common".

4. My dear MiddleFingerMom!

Thank you!

I just was able to see that odd cloud formation from where I was standing, and then I moved to see it much more clearly!

I have been to Arizona, but not in a very long time...

Alas, I was not exposed to your wonderful sunsets...maybe someday! I would rather say "normal" than "common"! But I hear you!

5. I've only been to California twice and only once on the coast...

... (MiddleFingerMomSis' old house with a view of Catalina Island).
.
.
.
Though I had raced to the beach to see many an Atlantic ocean sunrise, I've never
seen a Pacific Ocean sunset. When I was in Palos Verdes Estates (the above-mentioned
house), it clouded up hours before I flew in and didn't clear up until hours after I left
three days later!!!!!!)

When I asked MFMS if her house was ON the beach, she told me it was in the hills --
"about $2,000,000 off the beach".

6. The clouds can be a problem up on the hill, as we call it!

It is significantly higher than here, and the clouds are often present there.

The view of Catalina from your sister's house cannot be beat!

8. She is most obviously a Pro, my dear Tikki!

I can easily see why you love her work.

I just dabble, and now and then the skies cooperate!

Thanks for coming by and for the link.



At first, I thought this was a photo......but I looked at your link, and I see these are paintings. Very well done!

14. My dear OhioChick!

I had to share! We haven't had any pretty sunsets in a while...

And I know you've already had some Winter weather there...snow and all...

Glad I could help with that!

13. Lovely, thank you!

I love sunsets! There's the beauty, but there's a poignancy there as well that has it's own beauty, if that makes sense.

I noticed that here in Iowa, winter sunsets have seemed to be more colorful lately; I don't know why, it just surprises me. Maybe it's just this year, cause it's been very warm this winter.

Thanks again, sunsets are nature's way of making up for a lot of stresses elsewhere IMO.

16. My dear kimi!

You're very welcome!

I really don't know what makes sunsets colorful some times, and not others...except here, we get the colors when the smog blows out over the ocean.

They sure do relieve stress!
