Spectacular Sunsets

I noticed that the sunsets over the ocean were so much more spectacular than anything that I've seen in a long time.  Part of it is that water always adds eye catching colors in the reflections.  Another part of it is that there were no telephone and electrical lines getting in the way.  A few weeks ago, I saw a fabulous sunset.  I tried to take a photo but there were too many high wires in the way.

The Final Minutes of Sunshine
Notice in the final minutes of sunshine (above) how some of the clouds are consumed in the darkness that is waiting to come.  While some of the clouds that look more like a wisps are accenting yellow, pink and dark purple. The variety of clouds add a beautiful texture to the scene.

Sunbeams Over the Ocean

Anytime that I see the sun peeking through an opening in the clouds, I think of the majesty of God. The Bible teaches us that we can not look directly upon the brilliance of God because it would kill us.  So the photo is a symbol of God hiding his brilliance from us while still allowing us to be bathed in his Glory.

Purple Mountains Majesty
I love it when I hit just the perfect time of day with just the perfect cloud cover for the mountains to appear as "purple mountains majesty".  The clouds blend into the land and the land blends into the ocean in a perfect way that it is almost impossible to tell where one ends and the next begins.  In the foreground of the land-mass are some mountains (without a doubt).  Behind them is a combination between land and clouds that form so perfectly together, that I can't be sure which part is which.  It doesn't matter, the way the sun highlights in between the clouds and the land in variations of yellow-orange and purple make it a spectacular view.
