Winter's Palette


Sunset on Bull Shoals Lake in Theodosia, Missouri


When winter arrives

Colors escape to the sky

And leave the earth bare




They who dwell in the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs;

You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy.

Psalm 65:8




Linking with Skywatch Friday

Breath taking beauty...and created by the finest Creator ever. The colours, textures can only be duplicated in a small way, compared to His majesty.
