Sunday Creative and SOOC

Well, it's already dinner time and I am just now getting to my Sunday photo and post.  
I seem to have far more things to do than weekend to do them this time around.  I know you can relate.  
So today I am going to use a photo I took on Wednesday afternoon while waiting to meet up with my Ladies Night dinner folks.  It is near a local college and sets up on a hill.  I was trying to catch the sun, just before it set and as I came around the corner, I was able to catch this view.


It is straight out of the camera (with the watermark added of course).  More SOOC at Murrieta 365.

I am also joining The Sunday Creative this week at Madeline Bea.  This week's creative prompt is Ritual.  I have unconsciously started a ritual of looking for sunrises and sunsets to capture.  The potentially boring commutes are so much better when there is a chance I will see a stunning sunrise.  Also, even in the grayest of days - and we've had months of them by now - there is always a chance of a beautiful sunset.  If I catch one, I am a much happier person to be around.

As a side note, how much would you love this view at the end of every day?  Wow, great little neighborhood with really unique houses.  I had never been there before, but may go back to get a closer look in brighter light. 
I'll share my findings, of course!

Lovely shot. Sometimes the best ones are right where you live without having to go looking for them!

I love that you're finding silver {or pink} linings in the monotony of your commutes! Wonderful interpretation!
