Shanghai sunsets

Shanghai sunset – looking over the elevated highways

This last week we have been blessed with some beautiful weather.  Last Friday evening before I left the office my colleagues called me to the window.  The clouds looking to the west looked like they were on fire.  Lights on and around the elevated road were twinkling on  and cars headed into the clouds.  The colors changed from red to purple to black as we stood there soaking in the beauty.

Then Saturday as I was going back and forth moving boxes, I noticed that the sky was tinged pink and thought it was so beautiful that a photo was needed.

Despite all the chaos right now, there is beauty everywhere.  I also posted on sunsets a couple of weeks ago in response to Where’s my Backpack’s challenge.

Where have you seen your most recent sunset?

    I saw a pink sky like that here in Elmhurst last week – so pretty. I recently saw a sunset (and sunrise) in Maui 🙂

      Beauty can be everywhere! (Though Maui may have just a little bit more) Good to see you commenting!
