Gratuitous Sunday Photo: Sunshine Tree

Yesterday was mostly gray and rainy around here, and much cooler than it really should be at this time of year. Pretty depressing, actually. We stayed home and played with M's new Mac. A lazy day.

But after all the gloom, we were surprised by a really lovely sunset, and when I stepped out onto the balcony before dinner, I noticed the setting sun had caught this stand of trees and was really gilding the one lonely sycamore in the bunch. It was a beautiful moment, and I only managed to capture just a bit of the effect with my camera; but it reminded me that even though summer is dying, there are nice things to be said for autumn, too.

  1. I think you did a great job of capturing the sunlight on this tree. We do have something beautiful to look forward to in autumn.

  2. Gorgeous photo. Autumn is my favorite season, too mand we only have about a day of it here. You take such lovely photos -- you should compile a book.

  3. That was supposed to say "too BAD" -- not sure where mand came from! Haha!
