soothing sights

I felt this evening I needed an attitude adjustment, so I decided to cool off by posting a picture of some small lenticular clouds, which are common over mountains and lakes in the summertime. I am not sure whether there is enough red for this picture to qualify for Ruby Tuesday, but I'll let you be the judge. Sometimes the beauty and soothing quality of the outdoors acts as a palliative for worrisome thoughts. It helps me sometimes find perspective and more loving reflection.

I don't think there is a "standard" for achieving redness in RT... I have seen all shades and transparencies! :) It's a beautiful sunset! (that's the important part!)

It is indeed a soothing scene and yes, that glowing pink is enough to make this pastel ruby fit just fine.
Beautiful!

Your photo reminds me of how serene one feels when one is sitting by the river or the sea....wonderful picture! I especially love the shape of the clouds and the pinkish-orange tinge of the sky, perfect backdrop for the water-body!

The clouds are so unusual. It looks like they're waiting at an imaginary starting line.
