We were fortunate enough to spend another fabulous weekend up north. The weather was perfect and we were rewarded with yet another opportunity to photograph the sunset. I can’t decide which I like best so I’m posting a bunch of them. Enjoy and happy independence day!!
First, one of hubby’s silhouette before the sun set, then the sunsets:

“What subject keeps you coming back? This week, show us your muse.”
Seems I have two that I come back to again and again: flowers and sunsets. So I think I’ll do a gallery of each if you don’t mind. Enjoy!

We had another successful Memorial day “open the cabin” weekend up north. We also had a nice, warm and sunny day. Bonus! Below are a handful of photos. Click on any image in the gallery to see it larger.

I was so busy cooking and cleaning that I didn’t get photos of the food. I made rhubarb crisp for dessert and look what I happened upon when I went to pick the rhubarb that I brought up to the cabin. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

We had another lovely weekend at the cabin and another fabulous sky of changing sunsets. Here are a handful of my favorites.
We had the most amazing display of fireworks over the lake and we didn’t have to go anywhere. At one point we were standing on the dock and there were dueling fireworks. We didn’t know where to look! Quite the problem to have don’t you think? :) I tried and tried to get a good photo of the fireworks. Alas, my iphone camera is not the best for this type of shot. But I did choose one to share.
And the sky’s colors just kept on giving. This one was taken about 45 minutes after the sun had set and you can kind of see some fireworks going off way across the lake.
And, oh heck, here’s a gratuitous photo of Fritz in the red chair totally unrelated to the 4th of July. I just like this photo of him. Red looks good on him don’t you think?

I’m on a roll with trying to catch up with the many blog posts I have wanted to create. Might as well keep going :)
We always spend Memorial Day weekend at the family cabin up north don’t ya know. And almost always we get the most amazing sunsets. Here’s a collection of my favorite shots from last weekend’s sunsets.
Happy weekend everyone!!
