Photo Friday: Out of Africa?

Monday evening I had dinner with some of my cronies. I drove over to a congested suburb. I took the hour-long commute to the area where I worked before I started working for the most difficult, yet most understanding, boss ever. (Me.)

Two of my friends retired. The third, Linda, worries about being made redundant by an eminent take-over. (I love the polite British term for losing a job.) The four of us catch up.

Magnificence greets us at the door as we leave:


As beautiful as the sunsets in Africa. Looking out over the parking lot, I hardly know I’m in the city. A peace comes with such beauty.

There’s one more thing adding a bit more dramatic red  to the landscape.  See it almost at the left, bottom edge?  A police car.


I drive into this beauty, watching it go from golden pink to scarlet, to navy-blue, and  finally sink into blackness, as I trek back home.

(Photos taken with my iPhone5, no enhancements.)

    Gorgeous pictures! I love sunsets and sunrises for this reason and this time of year they are stunning in most places. I grew up in West Texas where the landscape is flat, but the sky is incredible. Have a great weekend, Adela!

      It was, indeed, a gorgeous evening, Pam.

  2. Stunningly beautiful, I love that you didn’t alter the photos. Thanks you, all the world loves a colorful sunset/sunrise.

  3. I must agree with Pam. I’m a Texas girl as well and your photo makes me think of our sunsets.

      I think I said this before, but it bears repeating. It’s no accident so many Michiganders transplanted to Texas. Much of the landscape is very familiar. I remember the first time I drove to Texas. I had to get out and feel the leaves. They looked so familiar, but the climate was so much more arid. (Yes, the scientist in me comes out.)
