The Unbearable Brightness of Seeing

Sunset tonight from our verandah.  Every one a gem!

A couple of minutes later, zoomed in...


  1. "Every one a gem"? Surely not. Many's the time I waited for the sunset to beat all others but it never came. Your picture is gorgeous - the reds are so deep. You're very lucky to live there. Just hope the river doesn't flood!

  2. Well, I meant every photo I take, actually :-) We are well above the river. And the house has been here about 120 years... Hopefully a while longer. Nice to read about your first close encounter.

  3. PS I put a larger pic on here than you see. Click on it to bring it up.
