Sunsets over MtLawleyShire

But first – some more macro:

the 1st is a wee spider on a Lantana petal, the second is a frangipani – and this flower is all the way up in a tree.  Good zoom 🙂

It’s taking me a while to get the hang of the settings on my new camera.  First sunset:

storm clouds in the east hurrying towards sunset

sunset shadow  gaps of light

swathes of cloud and colour

2nd sunset: colour balance is off here and there

hurrying towards sunset too red


blue and gold gold

afterglow  towards fire

backlit against fire

3rd sunset – which was a little difficult anyway:

infinite variations  tiny crimson ember in shadow

sullen the wider view

dying embers  streaks and shadows

& last night’s sunset, complete with rainbows and virga which, in the sunsetty light, resembled dust storms:

cloud swirl  rainbow

stormy sky with virga  swathe of cloud

gold  looks more like a dust storm

against the glow   framed

sunsetty colours

rose gold  sunsetty virga

silhouettes  red at the end of day

brief moment of clarity  passing overhead

& of course – the 1st as I set out, so rather serene, the 2nd – patience personified as I come home – she wants her DINNAH!

my gorgeous girl  patience personified

I will hopefully have more to post either before I go out tonight or when I come home.


I am beginning to fall in love with my new camera.

    That sure seems like a super upgrade! Fabulous sunsets, but my favourite is fluffy cat demanding dinner 🙂


    • she’s always my favourite too 🙂 And the sunsets are still tricky with this new ‘best friend’ but we will get the hang of each other. I can’t figure out the right settings somehow – they seem to come out more ‘grainy’ than the old one used to produce. We shall persevere!
