what is beauty?

I love sunsets. 
You guessed that by now, I'm sure. 
Even the ones on gloomy days are typically beautiful. 
And I know we do have a great view from how high up our house is, but tonight, the entire sky, no matter where you looked, was completely deep pink with fading sunlight. 
It was a-mazing. 

and I know its a lot of sunset pictures, but I took them from all different spots
in the sky, so you could see just what I'm talking about. 
Complete beauty. Just like God. When I see beauty like this 
and remember He gives these glimpses to us of what beauty is... 
it reminds me of how much more beautiful HE is. The One who painted this sunset for us. 
Thank you Jesus. 


I had fun with this angle :)

Is this taken with the Nikon D40? Any filters? What was the iso set to?

Stef said...

its the Nikon, yes. I don't think we have the D40 though. Maybe the next one up?
No filters, just turned the flash off.
I have NO idea how to use cameras, so my pictures are very dumbed down :)
