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.
