The sun really looks like a star in these pictures. Very cool with the darkness and the way the road seems to narrow into a point in the bottom photo. Great stuff.

Nice to meet you! Clever name for a blog!
Thank you for visiting and commenting on my "Alphabe-Thursday"-post for the letter "E" as in Earrings.
It must be interesting working with small animals. But I would be so sad when you can't help them. I just love them. We have three cats and I would love to have two more cats and a dog if my husband would allow it. (He does not.)
I don't wear earrings everyday either, but sometimes it's fun to dress up. As I tried to explain in the post after this one, I try to do different kinds of solutions to suit different wearers. Not everyone has the same needs. I can imagine that you probably can't have much jewellery at all on you while you are working. Maybe not even a simple ring. But you live a life after work don't you? Don't you ever dress up to go out? Or as my mother did for my father who was bedridden toward the end of his life, because it is Sunday?
Best wishes
Anna
P.S.
Beautiful photo of either a sunset or sunrise!

I really enjoyed the reflection of the sun in the rail in the last one. It made a whole lot of difference for the whole picture.

Stunning photos of the sunset, and I like the angles in these pictures also.

Love these shots! Didn't the sun just pose so beautifully for you? Spreading her rays in a welcoming way, just joyous.

We haven't had a decent sunset in months, so thank you for sharing yours with us. I need the sun again!

Jay said...

Ah, beautiful!! Did you use a starburst filter, or is that just the way it came out?

Pam said...

I don't think there is anything more peaceful than a lovely sunset at the end of the day. You have captured it beautifully, thank you for sharing it. It just made my day better.

Lew said...

Beautiful color in your sky and the hint of the reflection on the water and guard rail is striking!

Kat, that last shot is a show stopper. Love how the sun is glinting off the bridge!

Georgeous shots ... definitely suitable for framing! They really draw the viewer in and evoke a feeling of serenity.

JM said...

These shots are gorgeous! The sun looks fantastic.

The Muse said...

Kat, thank you, so much, we need them. The antibiotics which are so needed...are now not being tolerated...and thus, the bleeding. The cure seems to be hurting just as much as the ailment.
Hugs right back!
