(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

This picture, from my archives was taken on a warm July evening in the mountains of western North Carolina. I like the color of the sky and the light coming down from heaven.

You captured some great sun rays! Whenever I try that, they are not very visible, this is a great shot! Tomorrow is a big day for you, happy birthday, and I know you will have a blast, because you will be with Betsy. She lights up a room!
