Wow...just wow. Breathtakingly beautiful. I just spent a few minutes outdoors this morning watching the sunrise. It was like the sky was on 'fire'. Love nature, don't you? And that top photo...well, the sun's rays on the darkening skylight...awesome.

Mickie,
What a gorgeous sunset! Just before the sun sets, the sun shines the most brightly.
Everything looks like burning! Awesome.

In the final shot, the trees look as though they are on fire! Stunning!

ODD STUFF

Through the dazzling bright blue sky
Pigeons swim and goldfish fly.
If you think that this is strange,
You should see the mountains range!
