Speechless Sunday's Sunset - Simply SpectacularAs the sun made its majestic descent over Lake Wylie, it painted the horizon with a glorious palette of warm golds and cool blues. What a grand canvas the sky was this evening! I love the wisps of clouds that streaked the sky as they caught the last light’s reflection of day. The trees seemed to stand as silent silhouettes, framing Mother Nature’s art. I love a grand sunset - the world seems to pause and everything is aglow with the quiet fire of dusk - what an incredible show we witnessed! Happy Sunday, Y'all! © Debe Maxwell, CRS | The Maxwell House Group | Savvy + Company | SavvyBroker@me.com | Speechless Sunday's Sunset - Simply Spectacular
