Sunflowers at sunset

Sunflowers at sunset_StaatsOur past week’s weather has been warm with winds out of the northwest.  That’s usually not something to note, except that there are wildfires in Canada and in the Pacific Northwest.  The smoke from these fires has been passing through our atmosphere in Minnesota, creating hazy days and amazing sunrises and sunsets.  Last night we had a quick rain shower that moved through the area in the evening.  Before sunset, the rain passed and I grabbed the opportunity to see what the sunset might be like.  These sunflowers were backlit by the orange sky and glowing sun; they all seemed to symbolize the warmth and golden colors that we associate with the summer months.

    So nicely done with such feeling and reverence toward the patterns of nature. Of course your exquisite photos are always enhanced by the extremely literate, descriptive and informative accounts of what is happening in east-central Minnesota, super work!

      Thanks for your compliments, Rex. You’ve touched on the importance of photography to me, and I’m glad the writing pairs up with the image. Hope your summer is going well!
