“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight”

We may not have many sailors here on the Plateau of Tennessee, but we have many people who can appreciate a beautiful sunset.  I snapped this red sky from the golf course behind our house on this past Sunday evening.


This is just a short note to let you know that I’m taking a break over Labor Day weekend.  I need to labor in the yard and get some other projects done.  Have a great weekend and I’ll see you Tuesday morning.

    Glorious sunset!! I am getting back into that sort of mindset, myself. I have been out photographing the redwing blackbirds, and gotten some good sunsets. And now the sunrise is much closer to our 7 AM walk-time, so they will be appearing in my blog, too!
