Yesterday's Sunset

Posted by
Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 25 April 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The sunset last night was just spectacular. It had rained all day. It was very dark and drab looking. Just before sunset the clouds started to break in the western sky. The sun managed to get under the clouds and what you are viewing is the result.
Incidentally the rock I am standing on is the rock from yesterday's post. I am just 50 feet off the left side of the frame.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.
