We had to go into town today for groceries, and I asked Steve if we could stop at a little nature area on the way so I could take pictures off the property for a change of scenery. When we got there, I spent about 15 minutes looking around and in that time I found some very beautiful small shelf fungus as well as a pair of HUGE shelf fungus that measured about a foot or more across! Incredible! I also found some really cool tiny opaque/translucent mushroom-like fungus under a log, extremely tiny BLUE fungus with white edging, and some baby pill bugs!

I was really happy with my pictures and looked forward to choosing one for my Picture of the Day, but when we got home from our errands, I took a look outside, and saw some really fascinating clouds in the sky. As I stood looking, the sun set over the far hill and then I was RUNNING for my camera! HOLY COW THE COLORS!!! The colors were so intense they were coloring the walls in the house!! First I took pictures of what you are seeing here, and it just got prettier and more amazing as the seconds passed by. And then I looked out towards the south and nearly dropped my camera...HOLY SUNSET ON FIRE, BATMAN, THE SKY IS A RAINBOW OF COLORS!!! As I charged from room to room, looking for the best window to shoot from, I yelled at Steve to come and see, as I bounced out the back door and out onto our upper deck for pictures of the sunset over the Table Rocks. I've never ever seen colors like that over the Table Rocks before, and you can see that picture above as an inset or in the next picture. WHAT INSANE COLORS!!!

Magnificent moment! I have once seen something similar. Pretty rare moments when sun shines so perfectly below the clouds. It literally looks like the sky is on fire.

I dared to suggest our freshly started Shoot & Tell group to you. You are such a great story teller, and we would be honored to have you there.

This is just amazing. The clouds give it such a lovely texture and as for the colours............ just fantastic. I'd have gone mad with the shutter button - red hot by the time the sun went down.
