A Place In The Sun



I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.  ~Vincent Van Gogh

I snapped this sunset about two hours ago, up on a hill by the horse farm. Peaceful and free from drug dealers, honking horns, and all other distractions. I felt if I could breathe it all in, I might live forever.


God brings death and God brings life, brings down to the grave and raises up. God brings poverty and God brings wealth; he lowers, he also lifts up. He puts poor people on their feet again; he rekindles burned-out lives with fresh hope, Restoring dignity and respect to their lives— a place in the sun! For the very structures of earth are God’s; he has laid out his operations on a firm foundation.

there is no painting created better than what God creates for us in the sky day, night, morning, always spectacular and so is this one.. sky watching is one of my favorite things to do, storm clouds and white clouds, and sun paintings like this...

Sunset is my favourite time of day (or dusk). You have some amazing captures here, Ginny!!!

Good Morning Ginny.

The sky is so pretty in the evening, and it's a shame that this is the time of the day when so many people are SO busy trying to finish up the day and get ready for the next. I appreciate your beautiful photos.

Beautiful pictures! I love the quote by Gogh. I wonder if that thought inspired hom to paint Starry Night.
