Sunset and sunrises feed my soul! This picture is one of my favorites and one of the few times my iPhone actually captured what I was seeing with my naked eyes. I can hear the water lapping the sandy beach and the silence of the evening as I look at this. When I am in Florida, most evenings I walk across the street to the beach to catch the sunset. Often times, there are numerous sailboats and other boats filled with people, watching the amazing orange / red / pink ball of fire wind down it's day, beyond the horizon.
Where I live in Sioux Falls, I do not have the vantage point of seeing the sunset without obstacles. Whenever I can see a sunset or sunrise unobscured, I am in a world of wonder and joy!
Does nature feed your soul? If so, what part of nature; Mountains, ocean, prairie lands, snow, green grass, rain, sunshine, storms? Put your answers in the comments and let me know!
Today, I am grateful for:
