Another MtLawleyshire Sunset

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:

broad glow  hints of cloud

momentary brilliance  desolation

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:

These are more ‘Turneresque’ in feel:

The last of it, with the sky darkening:

heat of dying day

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!
