Winter sunset on the plateau

 David has a passion for painted skies and loves to take photographs.
These photos from a late January evening.  Enjoy!

"Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden wand o'er the landscape;
Twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together."

 -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  Evangeline (pt. II, sec. II)

Gorgeous, - and Longfellow's words so beautiful and appropriate. Thank you for adding a bit of glorious colour to this dismal February day.....
