MtLawleyShire and a Landsdale sunset

Landsdale is a long way from MtLawleyShire – approximately 20 kms.  The difference in the topography is notable, as was teh vantage for the sunset: wide open, flat, reminding me that I was much closer to the sea than in MtLawleyShire.  It allowed, though, a glorious sunset view, despite the fact I stood on a major road – so no, I couldn’t really avoid the lightpoles, but they do add a nice perspective.

These straight trees caught the lowering light nicely


but even better were the clouds as the lowering sun blasted gold all across the horizon

and then the sun caught up with itself and the end of day:

and gone

in other directions, following the road, the skies changed, but the vast emptiness of it almost defeated any sense of colour

In the west, the golden echoes of light intensified clouds

it was possible to see virga

the sky beneath the clouds was as clear and clean as glass


the light began to fade and withdraw

leaving the hint of deep burning embers down on the horizon


A wide, uninterrupted sunset, not something MtLawleyShire is accustomed to.  I hope you enjoyed it 🙂

  2. I especially liked west-coast-sunset_1 and sunset_191. The quality and intensity of the light/colours are spell-binding. Love the series!

    Magnificent photos, a spectacular record of the sunset. So many of those photos are artful, beautiful compositions in themselves, and when they’re woven into the bigger narrative it’s really, really impressive! (I could say that it takes the Northern Suburbs to put on a wide-vista display of this kind … but I won’t. 🙂 ) – Van

    Lovely. I especially apppreciated the fenceposts in the foreground. Thanks for teaching me a new word– virga. It happens here a lot because our climate is so arid, but The proper name for it isn’t in common usage. Thanks!

    • Thank you 🙂 It was a strange area – a wide expanse of nothing. I’m guessing it will soon be full of ugly treeless, water-guzzling development. We have the same climate & virga can be so terrible to see while you’re gasping for rain! Sometimes, rain is forecast, radar maps are showing it, there is heavy pressing cloud and not a drop is recorded because it all evaporates before it hits the ground or is even really felt in the atmosphere.
