The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Patti.

Hummers on the Salmon River, west of North Fork, Idaho:

“Red red wine, you make me feel so fine” -UB40. Nothing says fine red wine like a #StoneCottageCellars wine-to-table dinner:

Sunsets have a lot of yellow and orange, but that’s from red, right? Following is a sub-urban natural beauty in Denver:

I had a sunset seen through boat masts in a harbor. It’s not a great photo, but I so wanted to say ‘red sun in the sail sets’. This will have to do:

It’s winter, my heart is in the snow. I went snow hiking today, but saw only white peaks. Here is an older shot on a Poma lift into the sun:

Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

Best wishes for 2020.
