Sunset on the prairie

This is what the sunset can look like on the cold, snowy prairie. I captured this on my way home from my daughter's a couple of weeks ago.  I just had to pull over and snap the photo.



Sharing with these link parties this weekend.

Wishing you all a great weekend.  Stay warm or cool wherever you live.

Blackberry Lane said...

How gorgeous! This lit up my blogger reader board. Lovely!

JOY @ http://joysjotsshots.blogspot.com/ said...

Breath taking. Glad you stopped and took the shot so we could enJOY the sunset as well. Just read last night in my NLT Bible version, Matt 16:2-3 "Red Sky @ night means fair weather tomorrow, red sky in the morning means foul weather all day." It was a saying the people had back in that day and one I heard my Dad say many times and showed to be true.

I'm glad you stopped to take the picture, Barb. This sunset is striking and it's great to see so much vibrant colour in a winter sky.

(I thought of you earlier when I was in my basement, getting it ready for a new water tank installation.)
