this was one of those.
All photos are in consecutive order and have
not been tampered with in any way.
I was down in the dell when I saw the light
and raced up the hill with all my might
the sky was aflame with colour so bright
I hurried to capture this marvellous sight
the further I went, the brighter it grew
till colour, pure colour was all that I knew
then fading, the darkening sky with delight
gave one more red flash to say good night.

I think such sunsets as this are things of summer. I wonder why. I haven't seen a really good one here in many days. Perhaps because the sun is so far south--visiting you.ReplyDelete
Wow, who needs fine paintings when nature provides moments like that! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting my site, if you never did, I'd never got the chance to see the extraordinary skies of Australia. Thanks for the share. Happy Holidays Arija!ReplyDelete
