While escorting Max home from soccer practice I glanced over my shoulder and saw an absolutely fantastic shot of the setting sun. The water in the drainage ditch reflected the bright purples and reds of the setting sun with the surrounding trees defining and balancing the colors.
I tried so very hard to capture the beauty with my cell phone, but it wasn't quite up to the job. I really regretted not having my camera with me. I need to start hauling it around again. I've been very pleased and delighted with some of the images that my simple little cell has captured, but I know I could do better. At least a pale approximation is around to help me remember some of the incidental beauty that surrounds us.
