Interplay of sun and clouds near the end of the day.
This week’s photo challenge is all about warmth.
The sun, peeking out from under a cloud deck, gave the illusion of warmth on a morning with wind chills in the 20s. The shake on this hand-held seven-second exposure (shivering?) gave this an almost flame-like effect.
Other eye warming entries:
Horizons can be open or cluttered, vast or close.

Looked up this morning and saw a contrail crossing the face of the sun. Plenty more “up’ at https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/weekly-photo-challenge-up-2/
The sun. A little word with a big influence.

March 1, 2013, UPDATE: Thanks to Dan Chaffee, who ID’d this as a red spotted purple. Will have to hunt harder!
Some days, you just get the blues, in a good way. The Diana fritillary butterfly is the state butterfly of Arkansas.
Aunt Betty in Minnesota has a terrific garden. Beautifully balanced between shade and sun, all surrounded by that lush, deep green northern grass that southern lawns can’t grow. It is a lovely refuge from everything stressful.
The midday sun backlights this tree at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
