John Scalzis Monday Photo Shoot

I have never done one of these before!

Over at John Scalzi's: By The Way...

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Light Effects

As the days get shorter and the amount of sunlight we see is less, I thought it would be nice for this week's Photo Shoot focus on light -- and the sometimes surprising things it does:

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Show us light in a surprising way. Long exposures, interesting reflections, the play between light and shadow -- anything that calls attention to the light itself. This is very open-ended, so I'm curious to see what you all will come up with.

I had to join in on this one because one day last week, before Thanksgiving, I took a great picture!  Pumpkin, my dad and I were driving to a store around sunset, and while in the car, I took a shot of the amazing sky with my cell phone!

It doesn't do the 'real' thing justice, but the picture still rocks if you ask me.

Here it is:

Awesome, isn't it?

I hope you all get to see some amazing sunsets like this, too. 

Makes you happy to be alive!!!

be well,

What a gorgeous sunset.  Ours haven't been so hot lately, mostly snow clouds, bu this morning when I was shovelling the drive I saw the most amazing sunrise colors, but no camera. ;(   Yes, that means snow for us today.
                                     Ah well,  Leigh
