Anatomy of a Sunset

It has been so busy (with weaning) and then so wet (with rain!) over the past couple of weeks, I haven’t REALLY indulged in a good shoot-for-the-heck-of-it.

Forgive me if I indulge and share some of my series of sunset shots, taken the day before yesterday as I basked in a much-yearned-for sun.

From our back deck, looking through the leaves at the sinking sun…

The sun warming the empty branches of our Flame tree, with moon rising behind.


A shot you may have seen before in previous post, as I walked down towards the river.

Some ducks enjoying the cool, calm water…

Shimmers of sunset reflecting around them…


Mauve clouds to the north…


Fiery-tipped clouds to the west…


Cool, soft, imperfect reflections nearby…

And back to the deck…


To cook a (quick) dinner for hungry (patient) family!

(Spaghetti Carbonara anyone?)
