Glint of light [SWF]

@ mirandablue
Don't tell me the moon is shining, show me the glint of light on broken glass. 
~ Anton Chekhov

Showing the glint of light on broken glass is a challenge.  This photo doesn't even come close to the beauty of Anton Chekhov, but this brings back warm, tranquil afternoons at my roof deck...sitting under the soothing sky of blues and oranges, sipping coffee with my feet up, waiting for a crimson sunset.

But it is beautiful and I believe that Chekhov would agree! Regardless, the photo brings back such lovely memories and that in itself is priceless! Enjoy your weekend, Miranda!

The light on the glass is wonderful, but that sky is out of this world. Your shot is a nice way to end my afternoon. G
