Following a heatwave in the 90s – this image was taken at dusk following the afterglow of sunset and some of the maple leafs are stressed and drooping due to the heatwave

    Hi Lorilee! Just had to make another comment in regards to your response. I have felt like deleting some of my images too then received positive comments. I think we should remember it is our Portfolio and if we liked it enough to upload and share it is GOOD and it really doesn’t matter if any one else likes it. This is such a beautiful image and so glad it did not get deleted. In fact I think it would make a beautiful card too.

  • Oh!! Thank ever so much, Sandra!!! :)))

    I love this Laurie! So simple, yet so elegant and beautiful. Love the sky color.

  • Thank you, Ginny! The sky color is the result of that 90+ degree weather we’ve been having. Remember the saying: “Red sky in the morning, sailors warning – Red sky at night, sailors delight” ;)
