This is during the last week, but for the last couple of days, I have either been working or the sky has been utterly clear – like last night, although I managed to get this shot of the moon. It’s heavily cropped, so the sky is a bit grainy, but I am very happy with the moon itself:
As I was trying out the new camera settings, here are all the photos I took with the different settings:
If only I could remember what the settings were! There were a couple of others but I am ashamed to say I MOVED! Oh dear!!
Now, onto that neglected sunset – well almost. First, a white cockatoo flying above sunset & a bottlebrush flower
Fellow sunset watcher: a singing honeyeater
Now – MtLawleyshire’s sunset: it started gold, almost benign:
As the sun sank, clouds whisped in & the silhouettes and light made the shots look like stills from a horror film:
It was also the light itself contributing to that sense of something inimical:
a close-up of those golden swirls:
The more distant view:
These are more ‘Turneresque’ in feel:
The last of it, with the sky darkening:
No – not a sunset, but my fluffy gorgeous girl coming down to see what I am doing:
& finally – do you remember the rose the lovely Italian lady gave me? Here are inside shots of the rose in a vase on my desk. Me playing with the flash & settings:
Just a beautiful rose, and the perfume was divine.
I hope you enjoyed this sunset & roses – & moon!
