The shadows of dusk...

One of my favorite times of the day.


I love being out in the garden as the sun sets...


It's when the hummer feeders are most active...


and when beautiful shadows are being cast...


...on chippy garden statues....


...and weathered birdhouses...
The perfect end to another beautiful summer day...

Beautiful pictures! Love the shadows.

Your fur baby pictures are awesome too. Both of my cats were adopted strays. They're the best cats in the entire world. (they're both right here next to me so I have to say that) ;)

I didn't know that that's when hummers are most active. I'll have to watch more closely. Beautiful images!

I'm with you, at dusk we love to sit outside and watch the sun set through the woods adding light here and there. Your previous post has some very pretty pictures too!

What a beautiful post, and beautiful photographs. This is my favorite time of day, because the lighting is so magnificent. What a beautiful statue, and what a lovely mood with this incredible lighting.
