Picture It — Sunset in the front yard #mfrwauthor #PictureIt

Picture It

I’ve decided to try to start a Thursday feature on my blog — a feature that requires little writing, hence time. Each Thursday I’ll post a photograph I’ve taken. I find these photos interesting in themselves. Hopefully some of you will, too.


This picture was taken from my yard, about ten feet from the front door. The only editing was to lighten the photo. The sky really was that colorful.

I planted that big mesquite tree at the left.  The wound in its backstory (writer’s jargon; sorry!) is that my mother-in-law backed her car over the sapling, flattening it. It not only survived, it thrived, like the characters in my books. Out of adversity, beauty!



  1. What a beautiful sky. The silhouette of the trees top it off. Nice shot, Ed. I like your Thursday Picture It idea. I’m glad the tree survived.

    1. Arizona sunsets are very often spectacular. It required no particular skill to get a photo like this.

  2. Gorgeous!

    Nice idea for a new blog feature, too.

  3. I can’t really take credit for the idea. I’ve run across it before, most recently with Wordless Wednesday. There seems no advantage to doing it with that WW tag, and Thursday works better for me.

    Wow. Beautiful photo!

    1. There’s a reason I chose this picture to lead off a new feature!
