Solstice Sunset

On the evening before the Summer Solstice, we lingered at our sunset lookout point. The shrubs are blooming, and the setting sun cast a beautiful light.
Sunset was very slow, as the sun hovered just above the horizon for a long time.
After the sun had fallen behind the mountains, we and the Duo hung out waiting for bank of clouds over the mountains to light up. We watched a pair of Night Hawks hunting insects in the sky between us and the mountains.
The sunset colors were worth the wait. Nature's art.

  4. We have been among the missing again...I was doing some catching up on your posts. it is so beautiful where you are. Love the pictures of the many wild flowers and scenery and of course Shyla and R. Being in the outdoors always seems like it refreshes the glad you are able to be so close to it and enjoy.
