Thank you Bernadette for new thread. I spent a week out West, and I must have brought rains from the SE out to SW, this was the 1st day I arrived there, we've got beautiful sunset then. After that there were mostly clouds/rains and we didn't get any more spectacular pics. like this. :((

Thanks... but I just snap the picture...the colorful sky is from Mother Nature...Storms do make the nicest sunsets and sunrises. Here is a bit more peaceful golden sunset on the west side of Florida. I am always amazed at my sunset/sunrise pictures and the many color hues they have.
By the way the fisherman is my brother.

Two gorgeous pics, sunkissed, and yours as well, burn. The one with your brother fishing is especially nice, sunkissed. Great human interest shot.

We had a big tropical storm come through here yesterday. Not too much damage at our place, but a lot of other people had big damage, trees down all over, power out in so many places, and still out in a good number of places. We had our power out for several hours yesterday, but it came back on around 6:30 p.m. I went to an overnight (I work PCA hours with a special needs lady), and her power had been out since noon yesterday, and was still out when I left this morning. I should call her and see how it is now. One of my friends still has her power out at her place. She was over here with her boyfriend tonight, and we had a campfire and had hotdogs, potato salad and corn on the cob. We had a fun evening, but I felt bad she had to go home to a house with no power. That really stinks. I heard it's so bad that Detroit, MI is sending out about 250 trucks from their power company to help out. It hasn't been this bad since 1938. I thank God that We sustained no damage to the house and our power is on, that's all I can say.

Burn the bridge photo is really spectacular.


Karen being without electric can be fun and can be horrible. When Charley hit here my mom and dad were without power for two weeks, and ours was back on after a few days, so they'd come over here during the hottest part of the day...temps were up in the nineties and humid. But they refused to spend the night because they had to be with their cat and at the time we had a dog and the cats. So each night they would try to sleep in their hot house. They got so tired looking by the end of the two weeks. The people across the street from us didn't have power for another week after we got ours back on, so we ran extension cords across the street for them...was kind of funny to see big orange and yellow extension cords running everywhere. We are lucky to be on a grid with two schools and a major intersection...they work on those first since the schools are a shelter.

This is the old bridge is the old Overseas Railroad bridge west of Bahia Honda Key...a bit of history.

HI guys! Great pics everyone!
I finally can catch up and post some pics. I had 2 busy months with watering the garden for a few hours daily and my Mom getting sick and in the hospital... then I had to bring her to live with us . She had an anemia caused by the lack of meat in her nutrition and she couldn't even stand up on her feet . I had to hold her when going anywhere, including the bathroom and toilet. I slept with her at the beginning, for about 2 weeks, until she could walk alone to go to the bathroom. Now she's beter, can walk alone and still living with us...not the greatest thing, especially for my DH!LOL They both are driving me crazy! Missed you guys! I have so many pics to post...still took pics!
Here are a few for now.
A sunrise in September.

Oh and a beautiful sunrise.

And a beautiful sunset (sorry, I didn't know you hadn't finished posting. I guess I was happy to see you)

Margaret, Mom isn't vegetarina, but she started to don't like meat anymore and this led to this disastrous anemia. I'm told that vegetarians need to take some vitamin B12 supliments which Mom is taking now too, but as shots.
Lily, our sunsets are usually when my doggies are having dinner...or is it the other way?LOL Anyway, I'm hurrying out with the camera and the doggies food when ever I see a nice sunset.
I have 2 more pics of the sunset I posted before .

Leafy greens like spinach are also an excellent source of iron and can be eaten raw or cooked, and a tiny glass of red wine each evening is also helpful...in more ways than one...LOL Give your DH a big hug...for tolerance...grin.. and your Mom one to feel better.

Sunrises are my favorite as no one else is up and the peace and quiet makes it that much more beautiful. :-)
May I? Our sunrises here in Maine can be intense between Oct. & Jan., this one was a few mornings ago.

Great pics. everyone. Pixie. Those are very interesting cloud formation and coloring. I've not seen anything so interesting. DM, I've seen the similar tree at a local Botanical Garden. But it was kept indoor. I was wondering if it only grow in subtropical climate? Moon, guess what? I acquired 2 Loquat trees. Now I don't have a sunny area to plant them. I'll have to take out other existing trees to provide enough sunlight for them. :))

Too cool on the Loquats Kim. Can you maybe limb up the other trees to open the canopy some? That is one of those OH Rats! situations...grin

Moon, most trees are mature trees and have been trimmed up high before. Still very shady, the only South East spot for sunlight was by our mailbox, will send pix when I take out the Althea bush there and plant one Loquat in its place for you to see. Wish me lucks.

You've said it best. Nature perfect sky paint!

The true Monkey Puzzle, Araucaria araucana will only grow well in temperate climates or at high altitudes above the heat, its a mountain tree from Chile and can't tolerate high temperatures, like you get in much of southern/southwest USA. Fairly hardy though, its OK with snow and freezing weather.

One down, one to go Kim...looking forward to your pics.

Yup, that is the problem living where the heat and humidity is so high...in cooler climes you can provide protection from the cold, but no way to keep plants safe from 100 degree heat...unless you are fortunate enough to have huge climate controlled greenhouses...which i am not...8-(

Lovely day thoughts to you all...Moon

DMersh that Monkey puzzle tree makes a great silhouette, what an interesting tree.

Beautiful sunrises everyone.

I have been away from my computer, for quite awhile. Had to go over to the coast for complete revision of right hip joint. Had the left one done Mar. 14, 2011. So 2 major surgeries in less than a year. The closest surgeon that would do that type of surgery is 6 hours distant. My son and his wife live 5 hours from here. So I can stay with them after leaving the hosp. after the surgery. so that is what I did. The Dr. did not want me to leave the hosp. area for 3 weeks, so I just was able to come back here a week ago. My son stayed with me to help for a week. I am getting along by myself now. Dr. won't let me drive until 6 or 7 of Dec.

We had 6 inches of snow last Thurs., and was really cold. Has warmed up now and raining this morning. snow is melting. A neighbor came yesterday with his pickup and snow pushing blade and chains all around and cleared my lane, which with the rain if pretty much bare now.

If i haven't forgotten how to send pictures I will send along a sunrise, and also one of my new puppy. My other little dog died Dec. 1 and I really miss her. This one is a Toy Box Miniature Austrailian Husky , She is 9 weeks old, weighs almost 4 lbs. Her mother weighs about 9 lbs. and I don't think Lady Wren will get that big.

Dmersh, that monkey Puzzle tree shot is wonderful and a very interesting one at that.

Gorgeous beach shots, Sunkissed.I would love to be near that beach right now.

The changing colors are really nice in those pictures, and the snow, although very cold looking, makes really nice scenery shots, Pixie. Siris will just love running in that snow, being Husky/ wolf mix. You'll have to get him a sleigh to pull. ;)

Donna, sorry you had to go through so much. Glad everything went well with the surgery. Hope everything heals well, so you can get back, to the things you love to do. But do take things easy for a while. Nice to see you'll got yourself a small companion, they do fill a void don't they? Beautiful colors in your sunrise.

Love the clouds, Moon.

Hi Moon, I'm fine. It was my laptop, that was sick, and the doctor pretty much gave it, the death sentence. My son decided to look at it. All it needed was updated drivers. I went all those months with withdrawal syndromes. :( Interesting shot with the trellis, neat how you caught the sun in the square.

Jmorth nice shot. great colors.

Adina , I do like frost on vegetation. It make interesting pictures. I missed a shot a few days ago, of frosted mums, the sun had been up a while though and it didn't take long for the frost to melt..

I took this last week.

Thanks Adina. Just barely visible on the right is an old tree house in the neighbor's yard. She mentioned a few days ago that they were going to take it down as their son is starting high school...when I saw the sun lurking there, it made me think of the tree house's sunset days...sniff sniff...grin That second pic is so cool with all the color in the sun.

Hey Kim...busy season is upon us, but hope ya get a few minutes here and there to recharge and capture a moment in time.

I am always amazed at how different, yet how constant the sun is...be it here in the south, up in Maine, way Northwest in Nebraska, or halfway around the world in Romania. We are all connected.

Have been away from this thread for so long. A lot of really nice shots, everyone!

Pixie, nice to see you posting here. Welcome to you and to jmoffat as well!

Pixie, Siris is beautiful. I hope he's not a trouble maker like my Jerry. Oh, I'm getting very aggravated with him! He is constantly getting into things. Thing is, he knows he's now allowed to do the things he does. He waits till we turn our backs for a few minutes or get distracted or leave the room. Then he's grabbing things off the counters, drinking from the toilet, etc. Grrrrr!!!!!!

Donna, nice to see you back. Love your new puppy's name. Sounds cute. Pics, please! Glad to hear you're recovering well.

Burn, your pic from Oct. 24th is reminiscent of a Maxfield Parrish painting, as is yours, Moon, of the cauliflower clouds.

Moon, I love your sun through the trellis shot.

Adina, I love your sunset clouds shot from Oct. 18th. I'm glad to hear you mother is doing better. I know how stressful it is to have a parent living at home, as my father lives with my sister and me. In fact we have a very large household now, with my sister and her boyfriend, a friend who is renting from us and helping out with Dad, my niece and her boyfriend, and my Dad and me. It's very stressful. Most days I just want to run away.

Sunkissed, I'm loving all your sunsets over the beaches in FL. I love the beaches there. Only been to the ones on the Gulf Coast, not the Atlantic side. The one you posted with all the blue and purple shades on Oct. 18th is my favorite of yours.

Congrats on the new grandbaby, Kim.

These next 4 shots were taken Dec. 2.

The the reflection in the water is cool, and the colors/clouds look like you are in line for some rain/snow? We have been cloudy since Saturday, but only the finest of mists a couple times. I sincerely hope we get a little closer to normal rainfall this winter.

Weather was chilly the day I took those pics, but today it was low 60's. We had the second mildest Nov. on record, and we are still having mild weather for this time of year. Works for me!

Mild weather works for me too. I can't imagine having to go through winter up North. Stay warm. I've been so very busy, but try to take time out and seize the moment from time to time.

Karen your sunset reflection picture is wonderful.

Pixie I really like the sun through the snowy branches...very nice winter photo sunset. The doggie is too cute..those eyes.

Ruth sorry about your doggie...so hard on the heart to lose a pet...I hope your new doggie brings lots of fun...I miss my dog...no new one here...think about it sometimes.

Jmorth as always you capture such a beautiful blend of colors.

My photo is from last week while camping in north Florida, the clouds are lit up by the sunset, I was actually taking the moonrise...left the sky with such a pretty coloring...

Karen, I sympatize with you too, so hard to have so much on your shoulders everyday!Many hugs to you, dear!
Burn, I am with Margaret you'll always be out "petite hothouse flower"!LOL
We're at home, only me and DH. Last night I talked to my DD and Nicholas through the webcam and Y.messenger. I showed Nicholas the lighted Santa we have and sang the Santa carol to him and then Andreea started to sing too, and we all sang all the carols we could remember. It was such fun, even if through a webcam! This morning we put on our Santa hats and suprised DD Andreea and Nicholas. Andreea also had her Santa hat on and Nicholas too, even his last year Santa costume...hardly fitting!LOL He was so excited to see the gifts in the morning, that he didn't know what to grab and eat first!LOL

What a sweet puppy Donna.

Hi Karen. Thanks. Hope life is a bit calmer for you post holiday. I had to laugh when I was reviewing those pics. Midnight Oil's song "Beds are burning" was playing. This final pic from that group looks nothing like a sunset. More like a backlit abstract...grin

Adina, we're fine. Thank you for asking. Summer hit with a vengeance a few days ago. Out of nowhere we ended up with a 40.1C (104F) day. It's like being hit by a sledgehammer. At the moment our weather is perfect, but the eastern states, especially South Australia and Victoria are in heatwave conditions today. Oh, your grandson is gorgeous. Unmistakably a boy.

Margaret, do be careful in all that heat. DH is heading to Brisbane in a couple weeks. He was getting clothes together and I had to edit what he was taking. We have only been there in May and June before, so he had long sleeved T's and jeans...don't think he'll need those, nor the jacket...GRIN Guess it didn't register when SIL said they would be surfing at Byron Bay...and spending a couple days on the beach at Noosa...Men???grin

Our temps have been known to break 100 now and then, and our humidity levels are very high year round. Heard a woman say one day "oh, it is not the heat, it is the humidity that makes it so bad". All I could think of was 'tell that to the food in the oven' Hot is hot.

It is actually my husband who is going to Australia. It is strictly a pleasure trip. He has way too much vacation time accrued and has to use some of it up before Jan 31 or lose it. He will be spending 3 weeks with our daughter and her family in Brisbane.

Thanks y'all.

Our grandson lives with us, and he is in his final semester of high school. One of us has to be here with him. Last summer our daughter needed help with childcare...our youngest grandbaby was 2 months shy of being old enough to be enrolled in a daycare center. Fortunately that span fell during our summer, so I was able to go to Brisbane and care for him for that two month span. My Hubby was most gracious, but more than a little envious...this is his turn. GRIN

Went out today to take a picture of an unusual cloud formation...this is what I got instead.

Love the changing sky you've captured, Karen and Kim.
Adina and Moon you have some sweet looking Grand kids. They bring so much joy in our lives. I'm just getting back from visiting with my 2 GKs ( girls). One is 11yrs old and the other 8.
Margaret, be careful you don't overcook with those temp. You must have a gorgeous suntan by now? ;)

Welcome back Burn. thanks so much. I know leaving your GKs must have been hard. Seems they grow faster when they live away from us. My DH leaves Sunday for a 3 week visit with DD, SIL and the Grands in Brisbane. He is so over the moon with excitement.
Lovely sunset...so calm.

Tell him to take lots of pictures for you, and that I'm wishing him a good and fun trip.I'm sure you'ld like to be able to tag along, as well. It's nice to be able to communicate and see them throw skype though.

Beautiful shots, everyone.

Burn, no such thing as a beautiful suntan. Anyone who values their skin keeps out of the sun. Leathery skin is the long term legacy of suntanning.

Beautiful sunrises and other shots. We've had cloudy mornings with sun later, and pretty cold. Did get down to 10degrees a few days ago, this morning was 19 degrees above, and hasn't been above 32 degrees this week. So I haven't been outside much. Did scatter some seed mix for the quail, and filling the small bird feeders.

Very dry here, have had no snow or rain so far this month. Have received a lot of seed and plant catalogs recently, so I better take some time to look and them. Will need to order a few seeds, and want to get some peppers, eggplant and tomato seeds planted soon.

Looking forward to spring as I expect most of you are.

Thanks everyone for the comments. All and all we've a very nice collection of pics but this thread is getting very long, any one has a nice pic. to start off a new one? Good point Margaret.

Moon, "...He is so over the moon with excitement..." lol I'd bet within a week time away from the moon, he'd "skype" the MOON and say "Honey I miss you and I wished you were here."

On grandmotherhood;There is a saying that when a grandchild is born, so is a grandmother. I'm toying with that idea being a brand new grand mom. lol

On the way home yesterday I saw a beautiful sunset, but traffic was so congested, and the cell phone would not have made a good pix, so I missed out. Here is a so so pix of one that I took couple evening past.

Donna, it's cold down here too even we're in the 'deep South'. Indeed, I'm looking forward to spring like most of us do.
