Sunset looking east.

Drove down Airport road on our way to Grand Valley on thursday....I have never seen it look so beautiful with the sun coming down under the clouds to light up the tops of the trees.....And then the Rainbow!

I like them both; in fact the 2nd one could be the one growing on my front side garden! I have several identical shots!

I do prefer the 1st one though, as I like the different layers and shadows, which gives it more mood.

Ah! Mine is not a Carolina poplar but a rather raggedy Maple! :shock:
