The ending of the day

Jilda and I worked for most of the day on artwork, liner notes, and a dedication for our CD. We have everything recorded and I'll get the final copies from Fred, our producer in the morning, and I'll upload the files.
My legs were stiff and my back ached, even though I'd spent a good deal of time stretching. There's something about extended intense focus that takes it out of me.
I decided to spend the waning hours of the day, finishing up on the grass. The mower worked flawlessly.
I made a turn in the lower part of the garden and saw the sun backlighting some goldenrod. When the angle was right, I pushed in the clutch, pulled the camera from my pocket and shot this photo.
It was a great ending of the  day....well, that and my team won tonight. 
I hope you all have a blessed Sabbath.


  1. Intensity and deep concentration can really take their toll on the old body, can't they? Great picture and I am glad you made good headway with your project today- Diana

  2. Thanks and you as well Rick
    I also find sitting in one position too long kinda stiffens you lol
    You seem to be doing exciting things. At least it didn't rain.
    Here it just never stopped.

  5. It's the simple things, isn't it Rick?! Thanks for capturing it for us.
