SkyWatch - More Kingston Sunset


This was one of the reddest sunsets I have ever seen, the sky, 
the sea, the very air was suffused with a glowing golden red.


The sun had set but the birds refused to go to bed,


flying in pairs,


practising formation flying


or, like these cormorants, were just sitting around by the dozen.


What fun it is to SkyWatch, the more you do it, the more you enjoy it.

  6. breathtaking mama. I love witnessing moments like that. It reminds me to pause in the flurry. I can do that vicariously here. There's a stillness in you and your daughter that i find calming. Away from the crowds. Its a gift. x
