SkyWatch Friday

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 19 November 2009

SkyWatch Friday

 The sun lights Golden skies with it's final breath of the day.

 I was driving into this sunset and had to stop . I couldn't keep my eyes on the road. That brilliant orb was blinding in it's last light and the colours were so intense, but different from the colours I usually see in a sunset. The land had already given up it's light and colour for the day and the contrast was stark.

  37. With your wonderful photography in mind, I woke up early and noticed a golden red glow through the curtains, and thinking 'Good, I'll be able to see the sunrise for once!' threw back the curtains and saw it was the light from a distant street lamp! grrrr :-)
