    Yeah, how abiout that humidity…

  • Ah, yes…the humidity…the moisture acts as tiny little prisms, reflecting and refracting the light to create such gorgeous colors! But….I’m not a huge fan of humidity and am so thankful that it has dropped just a bit today!

    Such a beautiful array of colors Sis, gorgeous sunset, beautiful work.

  • Thanks, dear bro…there are days I feel guilty not going down to the beach at sunset but…I’m getting so I can kind of predict when will be a good one. And sometimes I’m just lucky! Thanks for making this a Favorite too!
