Yoga sunset

We always get to yoga early to set up the room, and as we waited for the clock to tick 7 p.m. one of the yoga people came in, they said, "You have to look at the sunset."

I walked out and I could see what they were talking about. But off to the south, the moon looked like a shiny end of a clipped fingernail.

Just below the bottom tip was a gleaming Venus.  I tried to photograph it, but the picture was unusable.

The weather is finally cooling down, but still no rain. Something in the atmosphere over this part of Alabama has camped out and is steering the rain around us. The Matthew is heading toward Florida, but it looks as though it won't come into the gulf. That's a good thing for people who live near the coast of Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi, but the system sitting over us will steer the rain off to the east. It might be November before we get rain.

Even though I didn't capture Venus, I did get a fairly good picture of the sunset.

Hope your humpday is a good one.

  1. That's a beauty! Many times I wish what my eye captures would come through the camera lens. Your shot is a keeper!

  2. That is truly beautiful.
    I do hope you get some rain soon though. Enough rain, not torrential downpours.

  3. I would bet that of the natural phenomenon, the sunset is the most notable. And the statement, "LOOK AT THAT!" is used the most often. Key west is known for beautiful sunsets, No two seem to be alike. I love the one you caught

  5. What a sunset! I wish I'd seen that for myself. Here in the big city I seldom see a beautiful sky. We had heavy rain this evening, and it's supposed to rain for the next three days. We need the rain. I wish you a beautiful sunset every day.

    Love,
    Janie

  6. We had a very dry summer here so I can commiserate with your lack of rain, but last week we finally got some and they say thanks to that we may still have some lovely fall color coming our way. Your sunset picture is beautiful !

  10. No painter can create a sunset quite as beautiful as Mother nature. I love how the clouds are set off by the rays. Glad you will not get hit by the hurricane. We are having 24C! It's October! In Canada! What is this Gleaming Venus thing?
