Red Skies at night...

I'm desperately trying to get ready to go away for the weekend which involves tons of laundry, packing, cleaning, sorting, organizing, and lots and lots of agonizing.  But in the midst of it all, I decided it was important (for ME!) to join in over at I Should Be Folding Laundry in her weekly photo challenge: You Capture.

This week's theme is Sunrise/Sunset.

The sun has actually been out quite a bit lately until today and it just so happens I was moved enough this morning to dig my camera out of my purse (even WITH my purse, a lunch bag, and another laptop bag in one hand and a travel mug of coffee, my keys, and sunglasses in the other!) to capture the view down the hill from the parking lot where I work.  The fog settles into the "valley" (as it were) and with no leaves on the trees you can seemingly see for miles.  It was gorgeous and even though a few passers by looked at me like I had lost my marbles (for it must have been quite a sight with all that I was juggling), it was worth taking the time and effort to capture.  

The sweet irony was found a short hour or so later when it started POURING and got grey and miserable outside.  I was doubly glad I had taken the time while the opportunity was there!

Lovely shots. The muted colors are very peaceful.

Yes, you are lucky! The sun wasn't my friend this week and that yucky cloudiness has been here.

Great photos! Such a beautiful view!

I see You Capture everywhere now. And really must join - during a week when I have time, I remember, AND I charge my camera battery. Tricky, I tell you. Verrrrry tricky.

Lovely pictures indeed. Sunrise/sunset is such a beautiful time of day. I miss enjoying it the way I used to. My favorite thing these days is when I haul my butt out of bed early enough for a run and catch the sunrise while I am out there. Pure Awesomeness!
