Colorful Skies- Sunsets from my terrace



We often go looking for vista points for watching a sunset or sunrise taking all the pain of driving or hiking early in the morning, be it bone biting cold or mosquito season. We just ignore the beautiful sky while at home. We never think of gazing at the sky from our own terrace, garden ... blah blah ...

The truth is ... now-a-days I am stuck at home and so running up to the terrace to watch sunset, why?- my Mother had a surgery and I am taking care of my parents. Nice to see my Mom bending her knee easily and after few weeks she will walk without pain! Makes me very happy.

Well back to the sunset, it was cloudy few days ago, thick fog prevented the sun from shining! As he descended towards west the clouds dispersed. And the result you see in the picture. I will post more of these sunsets from my terrace in coming weeks.

  15. Lovely PINK sunset from the terrace. Glad you are helping out while your mom heals. My husband and I were going to the hospital for 17 days to visit our son, Norm, who had a strangulated hernia operation. He is finally home.
