i love the evenings here!
the hot, dry, intoxicatingly gorgeous evenings.
looking east from our back porch we get to see this:
{red mountains indicate a truly remarkable sunset}

turn around and voila!
we get to enjoy something like this:

i find it difficult to come inside with the sky painted such beautiful colors.
i just stand outside and gaze.

{i'm also loving my new canon that captures this kind of duskiness without any editing whatsoever. none! amazing right?}
