One of many things I love about the farm are the gorgeous sunsets. The property is positioned to perfectly frame the evening sunsets, as the property’s longest borders stretch east to west; and the house, barn and outbuildings are in the eastern part, looking west across the pasture and the pond.
There is something magical about sunset, particularly here at the farm. The barn swallows start to swoop and call to each other, swirling in circles before diving into an outbuilding to find their nests. The insects and amphibians provide a constant hum of natural background music, whose volume swells and ebbs in an almost heartbeat-like fashion. And the visual backdrop is spectacular! The sky colors can be so vivid, in pinks and purples and oranges and yellows. That color infuses the clouds, lights up the farmhouse and barns, and is reflected on the pond.
Below are some of my favorite shots, all taken with my iPhone 11 Pro.
NOTE: This will be the first of several posts that I will backdate, as I have gotten woefully behind on my blogging. Part of that is because I had a whole host of family descend upon me in late June, and then afterward, I flew to Seattle and spent the month of July there while my husband took care of the farm.
