crystal clear

The last few days--except for Friday....have been crystal clear here in Los Angeles....At least it's been very very clear from here on my hill! My trees.....I love my trees. Above, a little closer look a few moments later as the sun continued it's descent in the west.....On Friday, it was somewhat cloudy and a bit overcast.....And as the sun set on Friday, below is what the sky looked like behind my trees....... And a closer look at this lovely sunset, below...... And just a few moments before....look below at this amazing wonder of colors........ And going in closer....... And below, closer yet--once again....... Sometimes, the camera just cannot capture the true colors as I see them....perhaps it is the limitations of me or of my camera.....Whatever it is, still----what the camera does capture is quite extraordinary. And.....a few moments later.....this picture above. The variations of color are pretty astounding and takes ones breath away.......Once again, nature gives us "art"......! And today......out of the clear blue sky came this cloud cluster.....More 'art' created by nature.....! Below.....a closer look....... I never ever tire of all that I can see from my deck, here on the hill. That's the Pacific Ocean out there on the horizon.....I guess that was clear without my saying anything because the sun always does set in the west.....But just in case you didn't really look......There it is, my dears......And there are my trees......!




More To Come..........

Spectacular photos and I do see the beauty of the colors. Still I think there is something unique about the moment's experience of seeing the skies show first hand that can't be captured.

Naomi, these photos of the sunset and the trees are just beautiful and that last one looks like Paradise. I don't think you could ever get tired of this view! I know I wouldn't.

Lovely lovely skies... what a wonderful view you have from your hillside home. When I was a child in England I lived in a house up high on a hill. There was a marvellous view over the harbour and the village. I've always loved being up high, and looking out towards the sunset. Lucky you!

I remember late autumn in SoCal when we lived there was the most beautiful time. Perfect temps, perfect sky; it made up for the summer in a big way.

Cheers.

Beautiful. I can see what you can see - through the photographs. I know that they just don't quite catch the colours you are talking about but your photos are still lovely...

Those are really nice. For some reason here in Texas we get really gorgeous sunsets almost year round. Unfortunately for the last 8 1/2 years we have lived on the east side of a large hill so we only see the great sunsets when we are out and about.

There's nothing like a beautiful sunset on a clear November day. I find the air and the colour so much crisper and well, cold here.... but conducive to taking great photos like yours Naomi.

May we never grow tired of the miracles all around us......

Beautiful shots and captures. Sunsets are facinating though far too fleeting. Thank goodness for cameras. Lovely view you have.

Beautiful skies and beautiful trees. I'm not so envious as I could be with the relentless greyness we have had - but today the sun came out, the rain stopped and the temperature has plummeted.
It will be gloves,hats and mufflers now on.

Beautiful! The pinks and purples look like watercolors. I have always loved pictures with the trees in stark black in the foreground and then all the color of nature in the background.

Dear Naomi, these are wonderful Sunset Photos.
But, pls excuse me, I'm rather tired:
Felicia got 6 kittens during last night.
I say no more but we are both still at 100% work.
I might be given more time to comment your wonderful blog in the end of this week.

Great sunset pics :-)

Sometimes when I'm driving I think - that sunset I'm heading towards would make for a great pic. But then sanity takes over and tells me that fishing out my mobile with its camera would most likely lead to a Crash N Burn moment !
