    The weather is pretty much perfect right now, so as soon as 5pm comes, I get off the computer and we drive to enjoy the beauty that is all around. Last time we turned right on Springwater Rd and our destination was this one particular road by the local golf course where my wife really enjoys taking walks. 10 minutes drive maybe from home?

    Summer normally = no clouds, so today was a treat for us

    We had the street all to ourselves

    We always find something that someone left behind

    The long road eventually turns

    This guy was ready for Hollywood! He pulled out all the tricks in the book just so that I would take pictures after pictures of him :rofl:

    But this is really why we came here - to record another beautiful sunset

    Nature is just beautiful!

    Time to say good bye to the sun for the day

    I turned around just one more time

    The sun was gone now, but we were not ready to go home just yet. So we turned right again on Springwater Rd. There was something my wife wanted me to see. She likes to visit cemeteries and saw this last year.

    No matter what, MOST of us are lucky.

    Great colours! The light towards the end of the set made for some fantastic skylines!
    Good job!
