"Every one a gem"? Surely not. Many's the time I waited for the sunset to beat all others but it never came. Your picture is gorgeous - the reds are so deep. You're very lucky to live there. Just hope the river doesn't flood!
Well, I meant every photo I take, actually :-) We are well above the river. And the house has been here about 120 years... Hopefully a while longer. Nice to read about your first close encounter.
PS I put a larger pic on here than you see. Click on it to bring it up.
