The Mist Rises, The Sun Sets


After five days of rain,  the clouds finally parted late this afternoon. I was happy to see a bit of sunshine so I took some pictures from a window.


The cloud in the middle looks like a flying pig to me! He appears to be pushing away the larger cloud.

When the sun got low in the sky, I went back to the window and took this third shot. Then I walked outside to get some pictures of the sunset at the lake.


It turned out to be a spectacular sunset! And my Nikon lens served me well by intensifying the colors a little. This camera is having some mechanical problems but I like the lens and the compact size.


This last shot reminds me of ink blots, or a Rorschach test.
