Best Shot Monday- Reaching for the Sun

It finally set in this weekend. It really is fall and almost winter. Christmas is right around the corner. The flowers are no longer blooming. The kids are spending way too much time inside. What are we going to do? Our weekends are not jammed packed with things to do. I can't just open the back door and send my kids outside. It is dark when we get home. When did this happen?

This afternoon we headed outside for a little fresh air before it got dark. I grabbed my camera because it was still light outside. As I looked around I noticed the sun setting. It was shining down perfectly on some dead flower branches. It looked like they were on fire. Wasn't it just yesterday that everything in our yard was blossoming? Now it is SO dead.

This moment was gone before I knew it. It is so symbolic of how I feel most of the time. Time needs to slow down and wait for me. I am choosing the first shot as my best shot this week.

What beautiful flare. The color of the sun looks so warm and inviting. Thats one of my favorite times, when it starts to disappear behind the horizon and leave a warm glow on everything.
