The sun continues to move to the left as it sets at the mouth of our small inlet from the larger river. Most days there are no clouds in the pale blue sky to catch the dwindling rays of that orange orb and create a jaw-dropping sunset, but the angle of the sun as it bounces off of the water is, in itself, a lovely event. Let me share. Below the sun reflects off the water to shine upward through the drying dogwood leaves in the early part of the sunset.
Then as the shadows darken, the water still hangs on to the last bit of golden light as if in a departing lover's embrace.
The saltbush has begun to lose its feathery seeds and is the last to kiss the sun goodbye. While the air is mostly cooler now and I pull my jacket closer, the image is of warmth through my camera lens.
