pastel August sunsets

a peek at sunset from my front porch - 08Aug09 Last week, we enjoyed a number of evenings featuring subtle pastel skies at sunset.   If you prefer pictures to words, you’re in luck: Our humid weather has left me too wilted to draft stirring commentary.   Here are shots taken on August 8, 2009 and August 11, 2009 along the Mohawk near the Schenectady Stockade.
