I love that picture of Trond's - what a great place to live. One of my all time favourite places is a river valley in South Wales, just to the west of the Brecon Beacons. The valley becomes increasingly dramatic as you walk down it past a series of waterfalls, ending in one you can walk behind (you can just make out myself and the dog in the second picture). It has the wonderful Welsh name 'Ystradfellte'. The Brecons themselves are very gentle mountains much used by the army for training (they run up and down them!) or by us for taking the dog for a walk!

Thank you Tim! However, I do not live there permanently, it is my summer house ;) The summer climate is far better than where I live though!

Not a bad place for a walk either!

Keeping with the sunset theme....here's one my sook on the way home from a hike up Camel's Hump in Huntington, VT about an hours drive northeast from where I live. It was the more gorgeous sunset I had seen in a long while. :o

Ooops..should have said 'my son took'  :P that's what I get for not checking my spelling.

Amy, a dramatic sunset anyway!
I couple a red sunset to a windy next day, is that right?

Tim what a gorgeous spot for dog-walking! Lucky you!

Trond..."I couple a red sunset to a windy next day, is that right?"

The saying goes that I know of.."Red sky at night, sailor's delight"..."Red sky in morning, sailor's take warning"

I don't recall if the next day was windy, but it sure was that day on top of Camel's Hump. That's one of the tallest mts. in Vermont and a very popular hiking destination.

When I think of it you are right! in Norwegian: "Aftenrød gir god natt, men morgenrød gir drypp i hatt" and "Østa glette gir våte hette, men vesta klare vil lenge vare!".
