Weekend Waterview: A Symphony of Color


Sometimes you see a sunset that makes you stare in awe and wonder, mesmerized by the sheer beauty.


“See” is really the wrong word, it’s more like an “experience”. . .a symphony of color.


You can barely stand to go inside to grab your camera, afraid you’ll miss it, since the color fades and shifts so quickly.


I took these photos Wednesday evening, they’re straight from the camera with no editing.


Colors by God. . .photos by Nikon :)


Wishing you a symphony of color!

Happy Sunday :)

    Sunsets on the water are my favorite experiences Mary, and to me they are the ultimate sign of hope and a big reminder to be grateful….the best part is how the water turns pink…gorgeous photos~

    Wow!! This would make a lovely note card…or just to have as your desktop photo. Thanks for sharing your sunset with us. My sunRISE looked very similar this morning…sans the lake, of course. ;-)

    Love your photos, Mary. Yes, “colors by God.” So lovely. We just bought a mountain-view lot near Marion, NC and Lake James. We have never had a sunset view. Cannot wait to build and enjoy the colors out to Asheville!
    In the meantime, I have your sunset photos to enjoy!!
    Post them to your heart’s content!! : )
