Easter Palette Mother Nature Style

Untouched Photo of Extraordinary

A sunrise or sunset isn’t extraordinary enough to inspire people to go outside everyday and witness each new statement the sun and the sky co-designs for us. Fact is, both instances happen once a day, every day, of every year and it’s awe is lost in the predictable repetition.

Yet, sometimes when I’m outside and I am paying attention, the visual lauguage of nature takes my breath away. I’ve found reasons not to believe in a thousand different things, however, I’ve never found cause to doubt whether the sun will rise or set each day. That is the predictability of Mother Nature and the comfort she provides. 

I consider it a bonus nature shows off with such colorful flair ~

your writing is almost as good as the quality of your thoughts and observations. and that photo didn’t come out half bad, either. ;)

It’s a shame that most of the pictures nature paints is lost on a lot of us. But you sure caught a beautiful moment there! Good catch.

Wonderful picture and observation….too many times we tend to miss
the little things that make life what it is.

As they say, ‘familiarity breeds contempt’.

Thanks for the reminder – I owe you one.

I have a plethora of sunrise and sunset pictures that I use for wallpaper on the desktop. I change them about once a week. Keeps you in tune with Nature.

I suck because I always miss that stuff….looking for fish.

Once while driving down the interstate at 80 mph, I noticed a sunset similar to yours above. I stopped and snapped a picture with my cell phone through the windshield and it is now my phone’s background. After that I realized how much I miss.

Nature and the great outdoors, the best gift of all.

@Ken M~ Thank you! I consider your words quite a compliment.

@Wandering Owl ~ It is a shame that we miss such grand displays isn’t it. Although, I’d like to think that anyone else watching the sunset I took a picture of had no choice but to stand amazed. It wasn’t to be ignored!

@Wolfy ~ Thank you =) And a Happy Easter to you as well

@ColoradoAngler ~ Your welcome. You already pay me back with all the pictures and words you offer up on your blog that I enjoy so much. I’d say we are even. Just watch for those horizons.

@Shoreman ~ In your honor, and excellent suggestion, I just upgraded my screensaver to this picture of mine. Thanks!

@Rob ~ Listen up! Pay attention! (Pretend Mama Nature, with her hands on her hips just said that to you k)

@Clif ~ I think people (like us) just have to notice a display like our sunsets once, or twice and then we wait patiently to be shown the light just one more time (repeat until we are dead)

@Ken ~ Agreed. 100%

Great Pic! The one thing I miss about southern Idaho is the high desert sunrises and sunsets. Mother Nature more than makes up for the browns and greys of the landscape with beautiful paintings in the sky.

Lovely sky shot, and fine words to go with it! Thanks for sharing both.

good, because i tend to color most of my remarks with a rather dry wit when i’m awake.
