Serene Scenery Sunday

Hi everypuppy and everykitty! It's me - Ammy! Stormy said I could have a go at Serene Scenery Sunday, as long as I tried really hard to leave pictures of small 's' storms out of it. Deal! I promise!

What to post, what to post...

How about some beautiful sunsets? This one is from back on September 11th, but I'd like to share it with you now:

What I like is that not only is it a beautiful, colorful sunset, but there are tons of
contrails visible. I found that rather moving for 9/11. We too often forget what it was like when our planes did not fly.

Moving right along... we had some beautiful sunsets this week, too! The evening of the 16th, it was so lovely that we all sat out on the deck and watched the sun set together. This is what it looked like when it started to set:

I love how that cloud is just sort of hanging there! And no, it wasn't a small 's' storm cloud! In fact, let's get a little closer to the sun, to capture the true colors!

Isn't it stunning? Dave, Guide Dog for the Color Blind, really enjoyed all the rich, warm yellows and reds and oranges. Here's an even closer look!

If only it was the moon, I'd lead all of you in a good howling session!

Stepping back, here's another look:

It almost looks cold, doesn't it? The blues and greys and icy colors!

Mom was "working" out there:

Sure, she was.

Lastly, I wanted to leave you with a photo of Zimmie and myself from our trip to the Top of the World. This one didn't load into our slideshow for some reason, but it's one of my faves!

Zim and Am at the Top of the World

(Yes, we travel in a sports car.)

It was so peaceful up there - I wish you all could have joined us! Mom said that as the weather cools and especially once we have a hard freeze and all the bugs get zapped out, we can go more often! I can't wait!

Have a serene Sunday!
Love,
Ammy

  2. Hi Ammy,

    Great sunset shots! Mommy usually appreciates sunsets when she goes to the beach. No trips to the beach for the piappies though so it's wonderful that you shared them with us here.

    Thankies!

  6. wow those sunsets are soo be-woo-tiful! we have seen some really nice ones since moving here to California. the earth here is more flat, and it is much hotter with less clouds, so we get to see the sun A LOT.

    we like your mom's "work space" ha-woo!

    kisses,

  10. Hi there all of you...Stormy & Co.
    Tell Mom that those sunsets are absolutely exquisite! Wow, its quite amazing to think that you guys are on the other side of the world; that we share our sun; that we have sunsets and sunrises at different times, but that our experiences of them are so similar.
    Thank you for posting those beautiful pictures! You mom is getting really good with that camera of hers.
    Also...love that deck picture..quite a view!
    Lots of licks

  11. Those pictures are just beautiful. Mum loves sunsets and tries to get them when on holiday. this morning mum stopped her car on the way to work as the sky was all red.She took pictures which she will put on later. Mum though, said she had never seen any as beautiful as yours. Gorgeous. You are so lucky to have such a beautiful place to live. A top of the world as well. I love that last photo of you going back to the car.. Lovely post.. Hugs J x

  21. Those were some great skies!! The moon was something to howl about for sure. :) Cheese on your popcorn!! Mom says she loves white cheddar on it but she normally only has this at the theatre....I think we need it at home! What a great suggestion!

  22. Very serene - and we like how your tails are moving in opposite formation. Quite the complicated march!

  25. Dear Ammy,
    I am feeling so serene now after perusing those pictures. The colour of the sun reminded me of the lovely colour of your coat. You are very lucky because you live in a beautiful place. The place we live in is very plain. When we visit Ganmaw's house everything there is very beautiful and all the mountains are blue.
    By the way, I totally loved your last post as well but was busy and couldn't squeeze in a comment owing to the busyness that comes with a little hooman's birthday!

    smooches,
    Mr Darcy
