Sunset Afterglow in the Desert

Be Still My Heart!

Late yesterday afternoon I spent a few peaceful hours enjoying the beauty of the desert in springtime along Gold Butte Road near Mesquite, NV. Just me and my camera....and nature. I watched the shadows deepen, as the sun made its way toward the horizon, and finally rewarded me with a glorious finale to the day when the golden light of sunset turned common ordinary blooms and clouds into a beautiful scene to behold and enjoy. For a few moments all was right with the world and I left for home a little happier, a little more contented, and a little less burdened by my problems. (On the radio yesterday I heard a psychologist tell a caller who was suffering from mild depression to spend at least an hour a day outdoors observing nature. Great Advice!) The last photo of the day was my favorite.
