In moments the eastern sky turned gold

turning southward, a fire kindled in the clouds..

I turned full west and stood amazed.....reaching
right to the ground like a full blown sunset, the
rising sun had painted all the sky!

  52. You 're right about the climate, but it doesn't harm us if we save electricity, gas, water and food. It's not such a bad idea to look after the earth and handle her with kindness and care. The ozon layer is getting thinner, which is said that we are to blame for it. In the middle ages they had not many means to communicate, but we had no cars, no waste of plastic and other modern materials. There were no power-stations. Nature could restore itself faster than at this moment.

  73. These are beautiful pix. What fabulous colors.
    I've been taking my camera everywhere and I can't stop taking pictures of the sky. For some reason, I can't transfer them from my camera to my computer ---have to put them on my husbands, then on a CD and back to mine ---can't seem to pin him down long enough to help me.
