SWF...Backyard Sunset

For my  Skywatch Friday   I have some sunset photos from my backyard.

The header shot is the view of the sky from my backyard. On this day I watched a flock of geese flying over my neighbors yard.

The pink clouds are beautiful and reminded me of this quote.

"Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty" by John Ruskin









Thanks for stopping by to see my pretty pink skies and to see more beautiful skies from around the world please visit Skywatch Friday.  Thanks to the hosting group of Sylvia, Wren, Sandy and Fishing Guy.

Nature does paint some "masterpices" for us--actually, quite often. This is certainly one of them--beautiful sky. Have a great weekend. Micke :)
