The Great Outdoors – Weekday Sunset

While the weather is warm and we’re spending so much time outside, I think I’m going to switch it up and replace my {this moment} photo with something more my speed.  Like photos of the outdoors.  If you took seasonal outdoor photos that you love, why don’t you join in and post a link in the comments?  Tell the story behind your photos.  I called it the Great Outdoors so anyone can join in—it’s not farm or garden specific.

I caught this amazing sunset one night this week after a particularly trying day.  It was my first time alone in a while—I had just instituted a daily evening walk on the farm after Nathan's in bed.  It was relaxing to be alone and plug in to my iPod, and refreshing to walk briskly sans stroller.  I was able to walk faster (and hopefully burn more calories) and go places places on the farm I can’t normally access with a stroller.  And I felt lighter.  Refreshed.  And this sunset sealed the deal.  It was the most peaceful moment of my day.

  4. These are all amazing pictures. *sigh* makes me appreciate the beauty of nature. Thanks for sharing. I will have to go out & take some nature pics! I hardly ever do. Usually my focus is around my daughters. BUT tomorrow is beach day & I'll try & snap some there & come back & link it with your comments. :o)

  6. This looks beautiful, how peaceful to be able to walk around a farm in the evenings - especially sans pram! I can completely relate to the feeling of walking without it when you are so used to holding or pushing the extra weight of a little one. Thanks for sharing, and great idea to have outdoor pics for 'this moment'.
