Mesmerizing Sky

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Susanne Smoak

While having dinner I must admit, the view caught me by surprise and captured my attention much more then the food. It was truly mesmerizing how the colors shifted and the sun set behind the treeline across the lake. Indescribably! While having seen quite many stunning sunset colors in different States, Countries and Islands, this intensity (original colors!) took my breath away and I was more then ever thankful to always take my camera along, no matter where I go. Yeah, Virginia by a tiny lake in the middle of nowhere important, who would have thought.. Hope you enjoy this peek into nowhere.

Location: This was taken by Swift Creek in Midlothian, Virginia, USA
