MtLawleyShire Sunset

and why should this be remarkable?  Because for the first time in at least a month, there was cloud in the sky.  38 degrees celsius, and finally some cloud.  I haven’t been able to take sunsets for so long because they were just glare.  Yesterday evening was different.

The cloud play itself was wonderful.  More than 30 days without cloud!

Flaring into rose and fire:

like wisps of solar flames

deepening into intense reds and crimsons
