The 2nd Sunset after Clouds in MtLawleyShire: 25 Feb

On the Tuesday, with the air heavy with cloud and the threat of storm – although nothing happened in the way of rain or storm, the sunset was rather beautiful.

It started with a hint of gold washing a sky of almost tropical-seeming clouds, although to the south-east, it was remnants of storm cloud that intersected the hot blue:

Then the sun sank below the clouds and suffused everything with intense gold:

Clouds in the distant east began to take on that golden hue:

And the sun sinks through the dan of golden cloud:

From a distance, you can see the rays of light shooting out across the blue to touch the serpentine cloud above:

and then it is below the horizon and the gold deepens into rose:

The rays of light slice into the clouds creating ethereal shadow and light:

the cloud darkens, stripes of gold slowly subsumed into a deepening rose:

with an underneath of rich gold:

the clouds too lose gold and glow a darkening pink laced with shadow:

the red diminishes into grey and darkness:

leaving the sky clear for the moon:

I hope you enjoyed this sunset.  There is another sunset to come, but not from storm clouds this time. And this week, I am going to Matilda Bay, so hopefully, ravens and other birds.

🙂

  1. The purity of the brilliant golds. (111 & 12 in particular struck my eye) The trees (and hills to the right? I can’t tell) – the verticals on either side make a channel for the sun to set into. Gorgeous

    • thank you – & ‘hills’is an illusion created by silhouettes – slight rises yes, but mostly climped trees and housing 🙂 & I am very fortunate to have this outlook in the middle of suburbia
