Skywatch Friday: New Year's Gold

Sunset over the western mountains in Rio Rico...

...throws a golden promise on the San Cayetano peaks to the east.

Happy New Year!

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!

Happy Skywatch Friday 2010!

Wow. This is the first visit to your blog (linked from Desert Colors), as your amazing sunset photo pulled me in. Then the second photo topped the first one. Such beauty that you share is an amazing gift to us all.

Cheers,

Magical shots Kathie! Such truly glorious light.

Sorry I have also not been around. Son's family were down for Christmas and they worked like beavers. Karl cut down two huge pines that were robbing my garden of water and nourishment here on the farm and another monster in out Mt.Lofty garden that was starting to block the driveway with its massive girth. The whole family helped and they staced it into piles for burning in the winter.

We've had a few fires set by aronists within 10 miles of us but luckily nothing major up to now. Don't worry, having survived one we realize that only life is important. When you have that, all else is achievable.

All the best to you all and massive bear hugs for you.
Love, Arija
