Continuing with April's theme of 'Moments', Sally, over at The Studio Sublime, gave us this prompt for week 17 of the Focus on Life: 2014 weekly photography challenge:
"There is a moment when the day begins to quietly slip away from the earth and the calm of evening floods over the land. Colors deepen, stars peek through pin holes in a twilight sky. We begin to exhale and slowly let the world of the day slide from our shoulders."
Dusk, next to dawn,
is my favorite time of day.
Especially in the desert.
For my birthday last month, my sister took me to the Desert Botanical Gardens to see the Chihuly Exhibit.
His glass sculptures are out of this world!
|It was so cool to see how the sculptures mimicked the desert vegetation.|
We went an hour or so before sunset and enjoyed all the beautiful flowers blooming on the various cactus.
Then, as the sun settled down and the day turned into evening, we were able to see "Chihuly After Dark".
It was a breathtaking
Evening Moment in the desert.
|This one was my favorite. The way the sunlight glistened off the tips of the glass as day turned into night |
made for a very special moment indeed!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Life's Evening Moments!
