Sunset, revisited

Sunset in the backyard
I took this photo in February 2008 and am posting it today because it's another I've entered in the group pool at PW's latest photo assignment. I thought we could only submit one photo, but according to the group pool instructions, we can enter one per day. I've taken a couple of nice sunrise/sunset photos but if I could only choose one, the photo on yesterday's post would have been it, just for sentimental reasons.
This was my view out my back door when we lived at Northview Stallion Station outside of Chesapeake City, Maryland. It was 72 degrees that February day and a storm was moving in quickly, making for dramatic skies.

Las texturas en el horizonte, el árbol en contraluz y el color fuego del cielo hacen una hermosa foto.

Beautiful!!! I'm looking for someone to tell me how they put their name and that design on your pictures -- what program do you use?

Country Girl said...

Thanks, everyone.

Jo-Ann, I use Photoshop and I made my own brush using a tutorial from Scott Kelby.
