A quiet sunset in MtLawleyShire – and the fat fluffy cat


It was a very subtle sunset.  A cloudy day with not much more than the scent of precipitation – the forecast showers did not eventuate, and then, by the time sunset arrived, all the clouds were gone.

Very disappointing, though the fattee cattee didn’t seem to mind:

look at that tummee

Then she got impatient for DINNAH!

I went to check silhouettes in the next street: that golden sky.  I almost forgave the lack of clouds.

I loved the light on this tree:


catching lowering light

& walked around the block for a different view of the sky and found intense gold and colour framed in foliage:

The wider view showed how slight the sunset was:

empty of all but glare


I went back to the first street, passing my girl on the way:

The silhouette was lovely, the wider view showing a few golden puffs of cloud


almost the end of it         little clouds

There were soft pastels in the south east:

The sunset disappeared rapidly, leaving subtle shades in the west:

She is thinking evil thoughts:

Then – oh!  What was that?  Grrr: noisy neighbours.

    Another night settles on MtLawleyShire…


    • indeed it does, and we have hot clear weather for the rest of the week, most of which I’m working, so that’s probably the last sunset I’ll see for a week. Don’t like working nights :-/
