THE SUN SETS ON DANTE!

It was evening and the sun was just beginning to set. It seemed all the brighter as it moved towards the horizon, and cast its spell over Dante's dominion.

The grass on the lawn alternated between darker stripes of shadow and bright bursts of green. In the first shot, the sun is just beginning to illuminate the edges of Dante's fur surrounding his head. This slight glow soon emerges into a halo of light that makes my ginger beast appear rather angelic. It also intensifies and ignites the red heat that is, in reality, Dante's inFURno.

I hope you will find this photo essay both heartwarming and enlightening!

The sun really makes your coat glow! We like the way your photos start with the top of your head and end with the tip of your tail!

Dante always looks like he's on fire when the sun shines through his fur! SO pretty!
He's so lucky to go out and play in the yard. Poor Melvin still isn't allowed because he hasn't gotten all his vaccines. Soon!

Lovely. We wrote a Haiku today that fits your post:

Sunshine beams
Warm on our furs
Makes us feel cosy
Invisible rays of happiness

What a gorgeous picture! Dante, you are resplendent!

You know, we thought that the vast, orange, glowing Dante was the sun! If the sun ever needs a day off, Dante has a job to fill.

Lovely pictures, lovely Dante!

It is amazing because I didn't think Dante could be any more beautiful but the sun glowing on his fur at sunset did it! He really is just an amazing looking cat!

I never realized Dante's InFURno could be so beautiful!

Dear Dante', my momma will post a photo of me that is not in repose on Sunday. My momma would like you to know that it is furry difficult to get a photo of me looking at the flashy box because although I am a beauty beyond imagination, I find that the pa-purr-azzi can be furry annoying to my genteel nature.
