An unexpected Sunset in MtLawleyShire

A brief walk in MtLawleyshire. I came across a winter hibiscus – it is so much smaller than the summer flowers:

And in the bedraggled garden of a house up for sale, I found unpruned roses – in flower:

Then it was home & sunset which started quietly with golden clouds:

The clouds got a little more colour:

sunset_8  sunset_3

sunset_15  sunset_12

sunset_11

Then unexpected drama and mystery:

susnet_9  sunset_2

sunset_10   sunset_13

sunset_14     sunset_19

it all began to darken down as the sun slipped rapidly below the horizon and cool evening seeped into the world:

sunset_5  sunset_4

Then the unexpected: rosy crimson flooded across the clouds:

sunset_7  sunset_6

It faded very quickly, like a dream

sunset_16  sunset_18

and finally, an escaped balloon, the same colour as that brief sunset, floating eat beneath the grey clouds

against the darkening evening sky

    Lovely captures… looked at the balloon before I read what it was and guessed right… some kid crying somewhere…
