    Wow! Thanks for sharing. That is just beautiful :-)

  2. I’m glad I read the comments because that way I slowed down and really looked at the picture and saw the beauty. Before that I only skimmed it.

  3. As an author who’s effectively working their own hours, are the weekends any different? Are the sunsets more spectacular leading up to them?

  4. Very sweet photo, it took me some looking to understand what I was seeing. Blues are great, sun under the clouds is great. Love it.

  5. If while writing, you forget to look outside, grab the Bloomsky App and look for stations near you – or somewhere you want to check out, like Paris.

    Such a beautiful picture…but I’m sure you know that. :)
