Sunday Stills~Sunrise or Sunset

~The land is beautiful and hard, like life itself.~
~Pearl Morgan 1900~

This week's Sunday Stills photo challenge is sunrises or sunsets...I chose the later.

We don't get the spectacular sunsets like Arizona gets, but when the elements are just right, they can be quite pretty.


Summer Sunset 1/2
Summer Sunset to the west (of course).


And like Ed has stressed in the past...look behind you...


Summer Sunset 2/2

The landscape under that sunset is unique. To see the sky not punctuated with trees is really something.!

I knew you'd have some gorgeous photos from the east side. Too many dang Doug firs in the way on the west side.

Pretty pics. I was also reading your previous post about the Hollyhocks....you got one problem right Spider Mites...it also looks like they have Powdery Mildew which they do get a lot. Cut off the Mite nest you can spray them with (non chemical) insecticide. Do it maybe once a week for the rest of the season.Cut them off to the ground in Fall and then in the Spring as soon as they start making foliage start spraying them once a week or so that should stop them or slow them down considerably.Sorry this turned into a bit of a lecture didn't it. Love the color of the Hollyhocks.
