As I type the words to this entry, I am drinking a coffee from a gas station. I had no choice in this drink selection, because my K-Cup machine quit last night, and my regular fuel, Nantucket Blend is not available to me. So please pardon any mistakes.
This being sunrise here in the northeast, I'm writing about sunsets, and the beautiful colors that make them up. Sunsets hold thoughts of a peaceful end to a day, and even if your day was not the best, there's something about a beautiful sunset to ease your mind. A sunset also holds promise of a new day arriving, perhaps better that the last, and for me the possibility to enjoy all that nature and fly fishing have given me.
The first photo is of a beautiful sunset as it drops below the mountains, giving a faint bit of light on the waters of a northern lake. This view was from the porch of a small cabin. We have enjoyed this view many times over the years.
This streamer has most of the colors of a sunset. I designed this streamer to represent a yellow perch. To me it has that easy look of a sunset.
A "Rangeley Sunset"
When I took this photo I never imagined the beautiful colors that were about to be captured. The brilliance of the red/orange colors of this wild brook trout almost look like a sunset. I look at this photo every day, it's an inspiration to me, every sunrise.
Well as I finish this entry, the gas station 20oz coffee is almost gone, the caffeine has kicked in, and a good start to a wonderful day has begun.
