THE REMAINS OF THE DAY

"The evening's the best part of the day. You've done your day's work. Now you can put your feet up and enjoy it."

(The Remains of the Day)

Hubbard Lake July Sunset










"If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God."

Spectacular sunset, and wonderful photos of it, Joey. I especially like how you caught it in your goblet. Boo-tee-full!

Hi, Joey!
Such a lovely, peaceful place to enjoy a glass of wine! A toast to the sweetness of summertime: live, laugh and... loaf. :D

joey said...

Enjoy IG ... a fun way to enjoy the remains of the day!

About as good as it gets, Eileen, and each evening is different. Thank you.

Cheers, Cameron! Happy July :)

Thank you, dear Kiki. Do hope your summer is magical!

Indeed I do, Rosey! Count me in for enjoying the remains of the day as I hope you are :)

Thank you, dear Marnie .... (Clink)!

Thanks, Kim. Happy July gardening, dear friend :)

A favorite of mine also, machelle. Thank you and so true!

Thanks Nancy. This is our July sunset view at the lake ... not too shabby! Catching the sunset in my wine glass is added enjoyment. Since the sun traverses, I have a sunset view from many angles, hoping to capture all 4 seasons in my glass, a fun goal :)

Love it, sweet Kate! Happy July :)

Beautiful, beautiful pictures. And lovely quotes. I wish I were wherever those pictures were taken with that glass of wine in my hand!

Gorgeous sunset, and that much prettier seen through wine filled glasses! :P

Lindalou said...

When you hadn't posted in a while, I had a feeling you might be up at Hubbard Lake. Perfect time to be up there. Wish I could remember the name of the little bar we used to visit up there for a burger. It was very close to Hubbard. I'll have to check with my Mom.

The pictures are just magnificent.

Kala said...

I love the sunset in the wine glass. You are so darned creative Joey!

Rose said...

Lovely, Joey! I hope you're enjoying lots of relaxing--and cooler--days at the lake.

Elettra said...

Wow!!!!!!!!!!Great idea of the glass

joey said...

Thanks imac ... one of my favorite moments to photograph. Thank you!

Welcome Ginny ... how kind. Wishing you a beautiful 'remains of the day'!

Hi, dear Lindalou, and thanks. Lots of little bars with great burgers ... hum, wonder! The summer has been awesome with hopefully more perfect weather. Little Luke is a cutie ... you are blessed :)

Thanks, dear Kala ... and honor coming from creative you :)

Hi Rose. it's been a hot summer both here and at the lake with not much time in between to catch up on the blog. But life is good! Entertaining a dear Florida friend here then back to the lake on Thurs for more family reunion fun. Happy to see Thelma & Louise 'on the road again.' :) Summer hugs.

Welcome Elettra ... thank you!!!

Hi Joey,

Your Hubbard Lake shots are always so beautiful! But these sunset shots through the wine glass must be the best ever! Captivating images!

Thank you for your words....I can feel your pain. And thank you for sharing what you've gone through. I'll get back to you again.

joey said...

Thank you, dear Kanak. It's hard to take a bad shot of Hubbard Lake! Healing hugs for you and your loved ones.

Thank you, EE. With your keen eye behind the lens, you well know how fun it is to create.
