Picture of the day - December 2, 2008

"Sunset Solitude"

Photo of a man 'reflecting' on a gorgeous sunset.

Without a doubt, sunset can be the most peaceful time of the day, and with today's gorgeous picture master photographer Winston Rockwell brings us just a taste of the beauty and serenity that can often be found at this most special of times...
    "A moment of reflection... Summer is past, and winter is hard
    upon us. The days are cold and dark, and the weather keeps us
    indoors a lot more, but this season is also a good time to think
    back, as we sit before a crackling fire with a hot cup of coffee
    or cocoa, on the things we've done over the past year, and how
    fortunate we really are. With all the gloom and doom in the news
    these days, it's sometimes hard to keep things in perspective,
    and it's often helpful to just stop and think about the blessings
    we still enjoy.

    I don't know if the person on the dock in this photo was counting
    his blessings or just enjoying the glorious sunset, but this image
    always puts me in a contemplative mood, and starts me thinking
    of just how good life is, no matter what my stock portfolio is
    doing. Beauty like this may not pay the rent, but as long as I can
    appreciate the wonder of God's creations and take pleasure in
    special moments like this, I feel rich beyond measure."
