Photo Challenge #21 - The Zen of Photography

An interesting challenge to say the least......and with a busy week and weekend, it being James' birthday, I've had no time to take pictures other than birthday and family pictures!

And so I've decided to offer my favorite sunset picture of the summer for this challenge. I LOVE this picture! It is my screen saver and I have done exactly what Helen's description says to do with it..."A photo that you can imagine sitting in front of and meditating on the contents". The many hues in the sky that night were really amazing! It was truly spectacular! For me, this photo also evokes memories of that evening......the warm breeze as we drove through the open fields, the smell of the air, the sound of the crickets and water running through the irrigation ditches!

I hope that I've at least come close to achieving this week's challenge. Since it can be interpreted many different ways, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Gorgeous photo my friend. I can also imagine sitting there, nice glass of wine in hand and enjoying the quietness of this with you. I'm a real sucker for great sunsets shared with someone special.
