As I cracked my back while sitting in front of my computer this evening, I saw the most beautiful colors outside my kitchen window. I quickly jumped to my feet, threw on a jacket, hopped into a pair of my fiance's old sneakers  (oh ma gawd, I said fiance!!!), grabbed my camera & my dog and RAN out the door down to the dock. Sunsets change every second it seems & the beautiful light that attracts me to them is always fleeting. I stood on the dock taking 4 or 5 shots; adjusting my settings slightly after each take. As I stood there on a 45 degree January night watching my dog run along the shore and admiring the purples in the sky, I thought It is good to be alive.
