SkyWatch Photos from the Road and a Lake

We had a family gathering at a local lake Saturday.  Most of the photos I took from the car had reflections of the inside of the vehicle.  A few turned out OK. 

Sunset photos are rarely as beautiful as witnessing them in person.  Such is the case here.  I thoroughly enjoyed the sunset at the lake, and the reflections in the water.  What I didn't enjoy was all the smoke, and we had to leave shortly after these photos were taken.  I was a Campfire Girl, and have always loved campfires, but my lungs hurt to breath smoke and other odors.

Have a great weekend, and click on the link in my sidebar to see more skies from around the world.


  1. Lovely series of photos. The scenery is beautiful.

  2. Hiya Sue,
    Well, what a total change of scene!
    I had to make sure it was you :-)
    Terrific pictures. I love the second one best. Reminds me of a certain painting by Van Gogh.
    I too am bothered by smoke. Now is a bad time with leaf burning everywhere.

  3. Looks like such a fun outing at a great place and a beautiful day as well! Such lovely skies! Doesn't get much better! Really enjoyed your photos! Have a lovely weekend!


  4. Looks like a lovely place. The second photo is my favorite. It really does look like a painting!

  5. Your reflection photos are very scenic. Sunsets look even more beautiful when reflected on the water.

  6. Beautiful transition of shots from the prairie to the lake. Lovely photos!

  7. Somehow, I just NOW discovered THIS blog (have always enjoyed the "Corner"...).

    Like you, I have trouble "capturing" the sunset. Even the BEST photography fails to convey the "living" part of it...

  8. Beautifuls frames with a divine light
