A sunset and a busy sky

 

Here are a few photos of the sunset my hubby and I enjoyed at the lake a few evenings ago.   The sunset wasn't all that spectacular, but I enjoyed the warm evening for this time of year and loved watching the sky for the jets flying overhead.  


I couldn't choose a favorite, so I'll just show them all.

   
    
It was such a peaceful and quiet evening where we sat, but the skies were very busy!

Until next time...

  4. Lovely...

    Makes you wonder, what all the sky activity is prompted by... I try to think it's our Air Force, doing war games, to take care of us, in time of need.

  9. Beautiful Cheryl! The colors!! We have been having increased traffic from Whiteman AFB. Lots of A-10 Wart Hogs and Black Hawks. No contrails from them but we see them up close and personal. Hear them too! That last picture!!!!!

    I love all those streaks - they look so pretty in the sunset! I think it's wonderful that you are on the lake at sunset . . . with your hubby!!

    Our weather is really warm too - kinda scares me...! We need snow!
