Fattee Cattee and Sunset after clouds in MtLawleyShire: Feb 24

“What you doing, Mum?”


I’m not your mother, but there will be a glorious sunset after all those stunning clouds. I’m going to walk around and take photos.  Look at how the clouds are scattered and clumped across the sky!

“Noooooo!  Not yet *another* MtLawleyshire sunset!”


Yes – and look!  Birds!  Too far away to see them properly, but can you hear them?  They’re probably corellas, and they look like specks of black dust across a golden sheet:

& the golden sky! It’s so pretty.


And now – look – you can see the sun sinking into the clouds:

“Can I watch?”


Of course you can.  See how it goes down through the clouds, the clouds turned into golden stitching over the darker golden sky behind:

and then it’s gone

“And what are these clouds doing?”


They are growing luminous

becoming great veils trapping and then conducting gold through the coming darkness


“But what’s happening down there?”


Oh!  Well spotted, darling cat – sweeps of colour defying the darkness spreading from the east

And look – those luminous veils are becoming something else:

“And down there?”

“Gold spreads its light.  So beautiful – swathes and crinkles of golds washing across the sky, leaving that tiny space of a pale almost green-blue down at the horizon.  But it begins to fade:

“Down there still looks amazing.”

It does indeed – east echoing the flaring golden fire of the west:

But the west – the deeper blue gown of coming night edged with the intricate gold of persisting light:

Softening now, gold intensifying and deepening into great cushions of rich colour:

And that marvellous cloud is dissipating as the deep blue velvet of night seeps in

and in the east, the colour is fading


Back towards the west – last moment of brilliance

and it fades into crimson and the grey of clouded evening


“Yeah, OK – it was a good sunset”


I hope, like Fattee, you enjoyed this sunset 🙂
