Urban Sunsets

These were mostly taken from William Street.  I call them ‘urban sunsets’ as telephone wires and buildings also – um – ‘structure’ the view.

The last 2 evenings have had wonderful sunsets.  Both had clouds which ‘structure’ the sky & we’ve had very few clouds recently.

So even though there was no rain (& we are in sore need of some), they were very welcome.

Here is a selection:

It started out quiet, with the clouds,


got more violently coloured and powerful:


and when the sun went behind the land, it left behind spectacularly coloured clouds.


& it was echoed in paler pastels in the eastern sky – also urban, so telephone wires & poles


The next day – or rather evening – was quieter.  No sign of the promised rain.


clouds leading the sunset over the western sky, suffusing it with gold:




Tonight’s sunset was altogether more subdued.  No clouds, nothing to fling it wide, sink it into the skin of the sky, but there was a lovely surprise at the end of it:


and here is the surprise: the new moon so pale against the pale sky

and then, it was not alone, this curved sliver of whitened silver:

and later:

and here she is, waiting for me:

    I love these pictures! The one with the moon peeking out from behind the tree is especially nice, too.

    I’m assuming that the cute cat at the end is yours?


    • Thanks 🙂 It’s always tricky getting the moon against so pale a sky – I only have a little camera – so I’m really happy you appreciated it. & yes, the cutie-pie is mine & was impatient for her dinner!
