Simple pleasures

For those of you living in Brisbane did you happen to see the breathtaking sunset last evening?

I was literally stopped in my tracks when I turned into our street. This is the image that presented itself to me. If you look carefully you can see the road in the picture.

I'm so glad that I keep my point and shoot in my handbag at all times. You never know when something beautiful is going to be presented to you do you?

This is the softer evening sky I saw once I parked the car. Pinks and blues are one of my favourite colour combinations.

  5. Yes, we saw it too! We'd got home from gymnastics around 6pm & Hubby was out watering the garden & Big Girl calls us all out to marvel at the beautiful sunset. I said to Big Girl, it's sunsets like this that make you believe in angels. I'm sure the great artists of the ages looked at sunsets just like this & saw angels too. It was so nice for all of the family to take a moment to stop & breathe in the wonderful show Mother Nature was putting on for us. Truly beautiful.
