Awesome sunset over MtLawleyShire. Saturday Jan 24. #4: the ending

and this is the ending of it – glorious colour.  Sunset did not go gently into any good night.  It flamed and stormed even as it darkened.


Darker reds and crimsons, purples and greys and that great cloud had returned to grey, bringing night closer

The grey of early afternoon clouds began to return, making a glorious contrast with the still flaming colours:

a contrast more powerful from a distance


The intricate architecture remained

but the colours began to alter the sense of apocalypse, the structure was lost within purples and blues

Red tones remained near the horizon


but the battle was lost – lost in beauty, in tones of dying flame

and so it faded


& there I ran out of battery!  😀

but what a sunset!

I hope you enjoyed it and get some idea of the majesty of the clouds exploding into splendour.
